The picture below is from about 1887, and was probably taken on the Richmond farm in Putnam, Connecticut. The names of the family members are in this post.
In the photograph above, we see a couple and their large family dressed in their Sunday best. The baby, James (born 1885), is on his mother's lap, and is still in a baby "dress." Thomas has a nice suit and Julia appears to be in a dark-colored high-necked long dress.
The picture below is about eight years later in 1895, although it may be as late as 1900. It was taken in Clinton, Massachusetts, according to family records.
The children have all grown up a bit, and it appears that their clothing quality has improved significantly. Unfortunately, the original picture (on the wall in my memorial hallway) does not have any better details. The family resided in Leominster, Massachusetts in this time period. The oldest daughter, Annie, is seated on the far right, and is married by this time to Walter Pickford and they resided in Clinton, Massachusetts. My grandmother, Alma Bessie Richmond (1882-1962) is the very stern-looking young lady in the high-necked white dress on the far left. She married Frederick W. Seaver in 1900.
