This vintage photograph shows a young brother and sister in their finest clothes. The photo measures 3 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Including the frame, it measures 6 x 8 inches. The frame is heavy cardstock with a silver border. The photographer's name is shown as Hiltman Studio, East Toledo, Ohio.
About the age of this photo: The woman I bought this from told me that her mother was a seamstress and would often receive photos of children in the clothing she had made. I was under the impression this was in the 1930s; however, I realize now that it could be from the 1900s to 1920s. After some brief research on the Internet to see if I could date their clothing, I believe it is from about 1910. Of course, it's possible that they could be wearing hand-me-downs from older relatives. Either way, it's a lovely photograph.
About the names on the reverse of the photo: The children's names are "Ida and Joe Potoczki, children of Joseph and Veron Potoczki. Children live in California." I don't know the date of the notation. I did some research on Ancestry.com and was able to locate the family under the name of Potoski, but was unable to locate any recent family members.
The quality of the photo is much sharper that it appears in the scanned image.
