Marshalls at Home in August 2

The Dr. George Marshall family is enjoying their garden and yard at 86 North Main Street in August, 1915 and 1916.  Dr. Marshall is the photographer of his wife, Mary Bachelder, and daughters, Isabell (1904-2004) and Virginia (1906-1999).  The images are from Lantern Slides, a way of projecting positive images that was developed in the 19th century.  Often slides would be hand-colored as part of the development process
