Photograph of Eleanor Patterson
Contributed by Nancy Robinson
This early 1900s photo of this precious little girl was taken at Empire Studio, 13-15 East Main Street, Amsterdam, N.Y. Hand-written on the reverse is the name "Eleanor Patterson." She looks to be 5 or 6 years old which would match the data below. This Patterson family originally came from Schenectady and lived for many years on a farm on Scotch Bush Road in Florida Twp.
