Ballard County Children

A young boy and girl, possibly brother and sister, with their dog. This photo was probably taken around the turn of the 20th century.

The photo is by T. O. Humphrey, Photographer, Wickliffe. T. O. Humphrey photographed several of the Kentucky scenes taken around Wickliffe that are part of the Ford Collection. Scenes from various parts of Kentucky were taken for display in the Kentucky Building at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis. The exposition was known as the St. Louis World's Fair. The photographs were taken between 1890 and 1903.
