Debbie Anderson, a Gardner relative, recently shared the following picture with me. I would enjoy receiving feedback from others who may have more information about the photo.
Archibald Gardner stands in the center, with Mary (Larsen) Gardner on the right. In front of Mary is her oldest son, Andrew Bruce Gardner. On the left is Lucia Adell (Gardner) Gardner, and I'm wondering if anyone knows for sure who the girl is who is standing in front of her. Based on ages, it appears that the younger girl could be Lucia's younger sister, Ellen Jeannette "Nettie" Gardner. Does anyone have pictures or knowledge to prove or disprove this identification?
Also, do you know who has possession of the original? This is a very low resolution scan, and I'd really like to obtain a better copy. Please let me know if you have any information to share. It appears this may have been taken around 1882? Andrew Bruce was my great grandfather.
