Shirley Pearson writes: This is a postcard with no markings of any type. I found it in my grandmother's photo album and, judging by the clothing, it probably dates to 1900-1915. Can anyone identify any of the people in this photo?

(My grandmother, Ruth Dickerson Patterson, grew up in Yorktown, had a brother and a sister. The sister that might have fallen into this group but, if so, I do not recognize her. I do know my grandmother and her brother aren't in it. They have a very distinctive appearance and would have been too old for this group. I'm trying to find other pictures of her sister as a child to compare.)

Karen Seibert writes: This picture came from my great-grandmother's Bible. Her parents, Rev. and Mrs. Isaac J. Langdon, lived in Muncie at 1431 South Walnut Street. I have been trying to identify the building, but with no luck. I contacted Ball State, thinking it might be one of their buildings, but it is not. Where might I send the picture to have it identified?

Isaac and Sarah Langdon are Karen's 3rd great grandparents.

Shirley Pearson writes: The girls' names in this photo are written on the picture along with the date: Summer '43, Sue, Kay. Since my Dad took this photo and lived on Martin, I believe this was taken some place on Martin Street in Muncie. If anyone recognizes the girls, they are welcome to have the picture.
