Belle’s Box – 3-78

This entry is part 340 of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here. The cast of characters is located here. And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little information here.

The numbering of these posts had been modified to signify that I am posting items from my archival book three, a three precedes the item number.

Even though there is some identification written on the back of this photo, it has not helped me identify the subject of the photo.

3-78a

I can see it was taken March 8, 1—. But no amount of manipulation helps me decipher the text that precedes the date. Can you help?

    I hope I might be of some help…..

    I manipulated the image and in my best estimate, it may very well say:

    Claud, March 8, 19–

    I think where it might be possible to get thrown off is with the loop after the capital C. It seems to me that the lower case “L” was completed but the writer inadvertently (or perhaps purposely for flourish?) made that swirl below the letter. Then, what looks like a lower case “R” is actually the first bump in the “u,” which then gets completed by a “d” that appears to be an “a” since it’s nearly impossible to see the line at the end of the “d.” The line itself seems to swirl a bit at the top to the right, making matters more complicated. :)

    I am also fairly certain I see a “9” after the “1.” The rest, I’m afraid, might be permanently lost — the edge of the picture has frayed away. That makes me make a note to myself when I write dates on pictures — put them in the middle of the back, not at the edge where they could eventually wear away.

    I sure hope I’ve helped!

    I didn’t initially go to see your cast of characters because I didn’t want to be biased in my reading. But just now I did, and I see a Claude!!!

    *happy dance*

    However, now my date seems off. That’s okay though, because the date is the part I guessed on instead of actually studying.
