I have many old photos in my collection like this majority are unknown family members and family friends i believe. This lady may have been my great great aunt I want to find more history about the Johnston Studio in Savannah, GA where she had the photo taken. So far i have not been able to find much. I would like to know if the Johnstons of Savannah were like the Scurlocks of DC?
