Great Grandmother

Thank you to Bryan Gourlay for sending me this hand-coloured portrait of his great grandmother, Jane Hoy Hill (Pringle).   The original black and white portrait is from Jerome and dated 20 September 1931.

"My best guess is that my great-grandparents' daughter, Mary Pringle, who was living in New Jersey, had the coloured portrait done in the US some time in the 1930s from the original Jerome photo.

This photo, and also a hand-coloured photo of my great-grandfather who died in 1925, were in very expensive, for the time, gilt  frames ($29.75 each) with a Chicago frame-maker's name on them - 'Deluxe Art Studio, 100 South Jefferson Street, Chicago'."

Jerome's Prices

It is interesting to compare the cost of the photograph frames above with the prices charged by Jerome for their postcard portraits in this photograph  -  less than a penny each!
