DescriptionThis is a photograph of three women standing on the lawn of what was likely the Kirscht family home in the 100 block of Chicago Avenue, Egg Harbor City, NJ, between 1905 and 1910. In 1905, Herman Kirscht was 46 years old, his wife Emelie was 45, and daughter Clara was 10. The back of the photo contains information indicating that Mrs. Herman Kirscht is on the left followed by Clara Kirscht; also that Herman was the photographer and that the family also had a son named Max. The notes further indicate that "he" (presumably Herman, not Max) had a shop in Pleasantville and Cinncinati Avenue in Egg Harbor City. There is, however, speculation that the woman on the left is Herman's mother Amelia (approximately aged 72), and that Emelie is in the middle, followed by Clara on the right.
