    All I can say is I am researching the accompanying documents, which includes correspondence, postcards, etc. Going to take me a bit of legwork to stir this cache and help to perhaps one day tell these people's story or at least a glimmer of it.

      You need to post from a PC and not a mobile device for photos to come out right.

      Fortapache really appreciate your tip. Was trying to figure that one out and to no avail, but I will try that moving forward. Thank you!!

      Concur with fort-- quality pictures are needed. Also include photos of the entire image (front and back). Sometimes there are details that can go a long way to determine era.

      From what I see, the first two images are post Civil War-- look to be 1880- 90s. The last two look earlier.
