Henry Leaman


Henry Leaman Posted by Picasa

This old cabinet card photograph was taken by the Gilbert & Bacon Studio (1030 Chestnut St. and 820 Arch Street, Philadelphia PA). On the reverse is written: "Henry Leaman 21 months" and sadly; "died when 4 years old". From the advertising on the reverse, I know that the photograph was taken sometime after 1886.

Another old photo from Dad's collection, most likely found here in Delaware or nearby Maryland or Pennsylvania.

I've also posted another Leaman photo showing Reverend Charles Leaman in China.

The photo of Rev. Charles Leaman in Nanking is interesting.
Charley served as a U. S. Marine in the Civil War and is the subject of a new historical fiction novel The Admiral's Guard to be release in March. You can read of his interesting duty at the website theadmiralsguard.us
