WHAT TO DO WITH OLD PIC

I "inherited" a box of old photos when my aunt died. (an aunt by marriage) all of the family is gone so no help on identifying the photos. For the most part, that's OK. However, I have one photo (maybe a 9x12) of a very refined-looking lady from probably the 1920s, a hand-colored photo. I have the name of the photographer on the photo but nothing else to help identify her.

Any ideas where I might post her photo or how to offer this photo to any relatives of hers? I don't want it to just go to anyone who might like old photos but would also like to know who she is, just out of curiosity.

I'll appreciate any information you can give me.

Pat if you can scan it, post it here- I'd love to see it.

The name of the photographer on the photo might be helpful. If it's from the 20's, there could be an off-chance that a family member of the photographer still has a ledger or records of some kind. That would be a dream come true and you may be able to identify the lady.

Also if you know what city the photography studio was located, it might be helpful to find a genealogy or history site that focuses on that city. If you posted the picture on such a site, there may be someone who sees it that can point you in the right direction. It might jog someone's memory or remind them of a similar photo they know of.

Location of the studio would also be helpful if there were still a photography studio there of course, but that's probably not likely.

What a treasure you inherited!

I'm going to be kept busy with some personal things in the next few days, but I'll look that photo up and post it for you to see. Thanks for the suggestions.
