The following photos were in the back of Thomas Rice Carroll's bible. There are 8 adults and one child but unfortunately, none of them are labelled with a name. The child's picture was taken at the studio of C. Lewis Charlottetown, P.E.I. One of the other photos was taken at the Boston Gallery studio of Thomas Cook, Photographer, LePage's Building, opposite W.A.Weeks & Co. Queen Street, Charlottetown, P.E.I. The rest were taken by different Boston photographers. Some of the photos are marked 1878 and 1880 and state that copies can be ordered for two years from that date.
I'm guessing that when each person left P.E.I. for Boston they had their picture taken. I would love to be able to identify the people in the pictures - they're probably the parents and/or siblings of Thomas. Is it possible anyone can identify any of the individuals in these photos from old photos they might have?
