MALITA UNDERWOOD: PORTRAIT OF A LITTLE GIRL IN JERSEY SHORE, PENNSYLVANIA

This vintage photograph features an adorable little girl. She looks seriously inquisitive as she stares at the photographer and camera. The child was photographed at the Schindler studio in Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania. Charles Schindler (1874-1949) was listed in the Williamsport (Pa.) business directory between at least 1896 and 1910. A pencilled inscription on the reverse of the photograph indicates that the girl’s name is Malita Underwood. Research found a woman in Jersey Shore named Malita Underwood, but she is clearly a different person than the girl in this photograph. Malita Underwood (1849-1906) can not be the little girl seen in this image because this image was photographed after 1900; a time that the identified Malita Underwood was a middle aged woman.
