A girl and her doll

blog-wannemacher-with-doll

Some years ago during a visit to an antique shop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I came across this cabinet card photo of a little girl and her doll, and I couldn’t leave it behind.  At the time, I wasn’t even collecting old photos.  I also purchased a photo of the girl when she was older. Written on the back is the name Marie Nunnemacher.

Although I have a name, I can’t positively identify the sitter. I thought that the name written on the back would be her maiden name, since they are childhood photos.  However, I haven’t been able to find a Marie Nunnemacher that would fit.  I even searched the last names Winnemacher and Wannemacher, in case I was misreading the handwriting.

It’s possible that she was Mary “Marie” Wandel, born in 1888 in Milwaukee, who married Max Nunnemacher.  However, this is just a guess. I hope that someday Marie’s family members will stumble upon this blog post and recognize her.
