Esther's Own Photographs
Many images in the book and on this website are photographs from Esther's scrapbook or personal collection. She evidently enjoyed having her picture taken, and the photos help document her life and give us hints as to her personality.
After her death, the photos were passed to several descendants until they were so graciously given to this author.
Esther was a complex woman, yet with all the hopes and fears of most of us.
"I guess I am a old maid proper" - 1921, Age 25, in a letter to her mother.
I hope you enjoy the book and this website.
