A cute little girl in an adorable outfit, stands on a covered chair at the Bairstow studio in Warren, Pennsylvania. She has a very expressive face and eyes and her expression seems to connote fear or concern. The child’s name, “Ella Hall”  is noted on the reverse of the photograph. There were too many Ella Hall’s in the Warren area to allow for uncovering biographical information about the Ella Hall in this photograph.The photographer, James R Bairstow was born in England in 1856, entered the United States in 1878,  and was married to Mary S. Bairstow. A collection of Bairstow’s photographs are held by the Warren County Historical Society. The Bairstow studio was run by Bairstow’s son, David (1884-1968), making it a two generation business. To view other  photographs by Bairstow, click on the category “Photographer: Bairstow”.

  1. This gir, I guess, was younger than she seems to be: that might be the reason why she was standing on a chair for all the time it tooks to take that picture or more than one … not comfortable at all!

  2. Neat picture, I’m a Warren native and had never heard of Bairstows so it was neat to not only see the picture, but to learn a little local history in the process. Thank you 🙂

  3. I’m going through my grandmother’s things and have discovered hundreds of old photos of our Morgan bloodline from Parker, Pa. Bairstow Bros. Photography from Parker’s Landing (close to Warren) are on some of them.

    • Enjoy perusing your grandmother photographs. Nothing like a journey into the past, especially when it involves your roots.
