The Second Photo From the Vintage Key Chain Photo Viewers - Crecenciana Aurora Matus Villatoro

In a previous post I shared a photo from one of the photo viewers that were found in the pretty vintage box I found at my Mom's house. In that post I told you I'd share the second of three photos in an upcoming post. Today is the day I'm sharing the second photo with you.

Just like the first photo, this second photo also looks to me like it's a photo of Crecenciana Aurora Matus Villatoro, my maternal great-grandaunt.

This photo was taken using my cell phone. I held the photo viewer up to the light and then put my cell phone camera lens next to the viewer as if I were holding it up to my eye. I then took a photo of what my cell phone saw.

I tried to scan this small photo on my flat bed scanner, but it didn't work out well. It looks much better using my cell phone camera.

If you look closely at the photo, there is a man looking through the window at the right above Crecenciana. I wonder who that is. Could it be her husband, Theodor Reinacher?

Again, I don't know when or where this photo was taken. But, I wouldn't be surprised if it was taken in Brazil. Crecenciana immigrated to Brazil from Mexico. The dog in this photo looks like the same dog in the previous photo I shared.

I'll share the third photo viewer picture in an upcoming post.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is wonderful, Jana! It is so exciting to see the buried treasure found in family keepsakes. And your improvised "slide scanner" works great. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

    1. Thank you Denise! This really was a fun treasure to find.
