HESTER HENRY BAKER SHELBY PHOTO ALBUM
Hester Henry Baker Shelby was given a photo album by her sisters "Bettie & Lou" (Elizabeth Coffman Baker and Mary Louisa Baker) in 1884, the year after Hester married Charles Shelby. Hester had over 80 photos that she put in the photo album. Most of these photos were taken in the late 1870s in Memphis at Bingham & Hilliard, Bingham & Brothers, Hilliard & Company, Gebhart & Company and others. There are also several photos taken in Knoxville, Baltimore, Buffalo and New York. Very few photos were labeled with any information on the photo or the album.
