Charles M. Morse, Jr. 1901 photo rescue
I found this photo in an antique shop in Townsend, Massachusetts. The photo is identified as C.M. Morse, Jr. of 242 Maxfield. The photographer was J. O’Neil of New Bedford, Massachusetts, better known for his photograph of the Lizzie Borden jury, which was given to Lizzie after her acquittal. Charles M. Morse, Jr. was a grocer living at 242 Maxfield, New Bedford, Mass. in 1901. He was born on 1 July 1851 to Charles Morse and Mary A. Bisbee. On 21 Sep 1875 he married Lizzie P. Wing and died 16 Feb 1920. The photo measures approximately 3″ x 3.” A sticker has been partially removed from the back. The unusual orientation and fame of the photographer makes this a unique piece.
