Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can ~ #20 Alnie W. ROYALTY

Over the summer I took a break from posting these old photographs. Many more remain to be shared. I plan on doing at least one a week, on Thursdays.

This is a spin-off of my 52 Ancestors: #14 Albert Spencer LILLIE (1848-1913) ~ Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can blogpost in which I featured a few photos from a collection of old photographs my 4C1R Joe Rooney shared with me. I asked Joe about using the photos and he kindly wrote, Please use them at your will.  I feel it is keeping it in the family and don’t need credit.  If anything, I appreciate your evaluations, identifications and detective work.  I’m hopeful you and yours enjoy them.  On a blog, in a book, above a cloud.”

#20 Alnie W. ROYALTY

Alnie W. ROYALTY was born 10 February 1888 in Allen Springs, Pope County, Illinois, to Charles W. ROYALTY and Lizzie M. WALTER.

When a little boy was too old to wear a dress he was “breeched.” In this photograph Alnie, about 5 or 6, too old to be wearing a dress, is wearing trousers with high laced up boots.

Joe ROONEY wrote on 15 February 2015: This collection of photographs was scanned at 300 dpi color by me. The original photos were sent by Sandra Lillie about ten years ago after she found them cleaning out a relative’s garage in Southern Illinois, finding no other takers (suckers). She believes they were a collection by L Vance Lillie. Many of the pictures seemed to be removed from frames or were in albums evidenced by fading characteristics and may have been from other’s collections. I scanned the reverse if there was laboratory advertising or writing. Some of the authors’ identification may be figured out of the handwriting matches. I did not scan the reverse of photos where there was only a three digit number that I believe to be sequence numbers on a roll of film. I didn’t spot any obvious helpful commonalities.
