Dear Ms. Smith,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the internet and located the following websites that may be useful in identifying where and when the photograph was taken: Painted Backgrounds for Turn of the Century Photographers, The Hand Painted Studio Backdrop, and Identifying Old Photographs: How to Do It and How It Can Help Your Research.
We hope this was helpful. Best of luck in your family research!
Thank you! I took a quick glance at the links--I'll take some more time to dig into them in the next couple of days. The link on backdrops is interesting--I know some of the family portraits from that same era are taken with studio painted backdrops.
