    Hi all:

    I posted that old pic ( victorian ) lady a few days ago. I opened the back and there was some writing -- But does not help me any. Also the back hanging wire on the Back is Copper.....and it also looks like the board on the back is hand cut ( with a saw ?) to me.

    Again, do not know what is written.....Looks like *Green Spandrel* but nothing comes that makes sense for that. Any idea on the words there on the back?

    *** The lady PIC here is taken from out of the frame and from under the Glass.

    Here is the old post of it Front and Pic:

      ....@ Kyratango - Thanks for the comment also. I will take a closer look at the writing too myself...

      @shareurpassion -- Thanks, wish I knew what it said. I will try to get a close, close, close pic of the name -- if it is a name. Thanks!!

      I greatly enlarged and clarified the mystery name. I still don't know what it is.... :(

      Treaish
      Tresish
      Treaislt

      LOL....I dunno! Maybe Kyra can make something of it. I somehow feel the name is of French origin. I'm probably wrong.....

      Thanks -- I did the same and thought it might be something like:

      ???? or maybe I thought it looked like

      PREAULT

      Anyone think Prescott?
    12. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      OneGoodFind - yes, since you mentioned it and I looked again! I think you're right. The name looks very much like Prescott.
    13. antiquerose antiquerose, 6 years ago
      It could be -- why can't people write neat...............LOL
    14. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 6 years ago
      I can't see close enough, not that would make any difference but could it be military? I've read a lot of old post cards my mom had from the late 1800's and they even speak a different dialect in the US back then. The hand writing looks like some of those old postcards. There was nothing military in them though.

      3f foot patrol? IDK but this woman needs to be found for bobby!

      Rose, I really want somebody to find your girl! It is so interesting.
    20. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      With a mug like that, if she diss'd in her time, I doubt even the family looked for her. Maybe this was trimmed from a mug-shot? LOL!! An image that should be printed on the rough side of sand paper so people know to keep the ugly side down! Sorry, but I'm on a roll!! LMAO!! You can't jog-off ugly!!
    21. bobby725 bobby725, 6 years ago
      I`m not fooled bb2, I can sense the undying love in your posts! ;-))
