Orphan Photos #161 & #162

Orphan 0161     Orphan 0162

Two different poses of the same little girl.  She’s so cute; wish there was some identifying information for her. 

The photographer is Felix Schanz, who “was one of the most influential Fort Wayne photographers of his generation.”1  You can read more about Schanz here (opens a PDF, scroll to Schanz on page 15).  You can also read his bio from the book Builders of Greater Fort Wayne here.
