Friday's Photo: Confirmation Revisited

Last week, I posted the above picture of a boy at his confirmation. I determined that the picture might be Francis Meehan, child of Sarah Murray and her husband Edward Meehan who lived in NYC. 

I cannot positively identify this as Francis as this could also be a neighbor or a another family member. However, as it is a Quinn/Murray family picture, I assumed that it was taken in NYC. 

Mary and Helen Quinn
Taken at Mueller's Studio
After posting this photograph, I noticed a faint photographers engraving. It was not legible and even a scanning and enlargement did not reveal the name. Scanning the reverse side and playing with the scan revealed the studio as Mueller's on 3rd Ave. I know that Mueller's was at 2196 3rd Avenue in NYC as there are at least two other family pictures taken at that studio within that same time period. Mueller's studio was just blocks from the St. Paul Church and the Meehan home. 

If there are any Meehan's reading this blog, I would love to have your input!
