I purchased the subject four studio portraits, one of a father, two of a mother, and one of a child. The photo of a young man, taken by Piggott, is identified on the back of the mount:

"Gilbert Ellis

A photo of a young woman, taken by Piggott, Healdsburg, CA, is identified on the back of the mount:

The other photo of this same young woman, taken by Piggott, Healdsburg, CA, is identified on the back of the mount:

The photo of a child, taken by J. Hardy, Healdsburg, CA, is identified on the back of the mount:
