1860 Massachusetts Ambrotype Portrait Grandma McKeund in BEEHIVE & Farm CASE
A small label behind the photo identifies her as “Grandma McKeund (or McKenad, or similar)” with the year 1860 added. There are two labels inside the frame: Frame maker was “Littlefield Parsons & Company, produces of Daguerreotype Cases” of Massachusetts; and the photographer’s label: C. Sylvester (successor to James & Co), 4 Summer Street, Boston. The identification of the lady was written on the photographer’s white card. Pretty lady with bright eyes. Cased image in a wonderful gutta percha with a terrific agricultural design on the front and back of the case (identical scene on front and back): Flowers, beehive, shovel, hand scythe, and other Victorian farm / agricultural tools. Wonderful frame with farming scene on both sides in raised (high) relief. Possible family names: McKeund, McKenad, McKewd, McKuad, etc. Handwriting is good but not perfect. This was definitely Grand ma. Please see my images for details. Beehive on case makes me think this may be a MORMON or Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) related photo.
