|In an album, Myrtle Davis was written below this photo.|
There were no markings on the back of the photo.
|Myrtle Davis was also written under this photo. |
This appears to be a younger photo of Myrtle.
She has a ribbon pinned to her dress
AND on the back of the photo what looks like
Northfield, Mass. Two letters that might
be "o" and "r" are covered.
A third photo, found in the album and labeled Mr. and Mrs. Davis 1917, could be Myrtle's parents; however, the Giddens family knew at least one other Davis in the area. Ellsworth Davis was a friend of my grandmother's brother, Charles "Charlie" Giddens, and Mr. and Mrs. Davis could his parents. Charlie and Ellsworth made national news, in 1909, when they tried stuffing a cannon with dynamite for a Fourth of July celebration. Click here to read about their brush with death.
