Old Photo, Stone House, New Hartford, Connecticut

Please scroll down to view all pictures of this auction.

I am presently offering, in separate auctions, a number of old and interesting photos from a New Hartford, Connecticut collection belonging to the family of Frank L. Whitney, who died at Winsted Hospital in 1940. According to some family genealogy papers, Frank was born in 1861, a son to Samuel Whitney and Abbie Crofts, of Sanford, New York. He was married to Minnie Towslee, and they had a son named Guy Frank Whitney who attended Worcester Academy and Cornell University, and later lived in Collinsville, Connecticut. I have recently listed some items from this collection, and will continue to do so in the future. Original photographs and real photo postcards are often historical and rare one-of-a-kind images which freeze that long ago moment in time for the benefit of future generations.

from the Whitney Collection is a vintage and original matted photograph depicting an old residential home with contrasting fences in front, and a man working on the roof. On verso is written in period ink, Stone House, New Hartford (Connecticut).
