A kind smile and guitar


A fine photograph of a woman sitting with a guitar. She sits in an ornate chair and is holding a small book possibly a hymnal?


Home in Seattle Washington


Theodore E. Peiser, an early pioneer photographer, was active in Washington State from the 1880s to 1907. He documented early scenes in Seattle including pioneers, 1900 military expedition to China and the Territorial University. Unfortunately, early during his stay in Seattle, he experienced the loss of his photographic studio and equipment in the Great Fire that swept the city in June of 1889. However, some of his photographic images did survive. from https://content.lib.washington.edu/peiserweb/
