  • James Smith Latimer [?], ca. 1840

    James Smith Latimer [?], ca. 1840

    A note attached to original photograph identifies the child as James Smith Latimer. James Smith Latimer (1836-1893) was the son of Alexander Latimer and his first wife, Eunice Jane Guthrie. Given that James was born in 1836, a photo showing him at this age would have been taken around 1840. The photograph, however, appears to come from a later period, making it unclear if he is actually the child in the photograph.
