Sanderson Home, Lee, Illinois

Having given this post that title, I’m not positive this is the home of the Sandersons or that it’s in Lee, Illinois.  What I do know from Mom’s photo book, the woman on the far right is Isabelle Sanderson (married Richoloson) and the woman next to her is Mom’s grandmother, Mary Ann Sanderson (married Oakland).  Mary Ann was born in 1868 in Lee, Illinois.  The family lived in that area for a long time.  How old are the two women on the right?  My guess is in their early 20s.  That would date the photo to the early 1880s.  What do you see, especially in the clothes?

Here are some enlarged images from the top photo.

  1. The left hand behind the back on all of the standing women …. similar pose. Makes me curious if this was considered “proper”… ? And all but babes in dark clothing. Hard to really know if there was actually color there of course. Just interesting.
