A mystery of studio photos during the early 1900s

Barbara Pharris of Irving was looking for early pictures of her family, the Brolls. In her venture she came up with a mystery photo album.

She said, “I took a trip down south and I ran by my cousin’s place, John Janacek. He is 90 years old. I asked him if he had any pictures of the Broll’s from 1878-1890. My mom was first generation [in America].”

Janacek gave her a box filled with photos and in it was an upscaled photo album.

She said, “It was expensive at the time. There are several posed studio photos. I don’t know any of their names or why they are in there.”

Pharris sent the album to Yorktown News-View.

“I thought maybe I can get information who they may be then I thought to call the paper,” Pharris said.

If anyone can identify the family or persons and want the photos, call Yorktown News-View at 361-564-2242. Complete album can be found on our facebook page.

More pictures can be viewed on Yorktown News-View Facebook page.
