Antoinette Walker Gould

Some time ago I was looking through an old family photo album and came across this image of a little girl. On the back of the photo is written 3 years, 4 mos, 25 days and her name, Antoinette Walker Gould. I don't know how she was related to my family, but I smiled when I saw the exact age written out in beautiful penmanship.

The middle name of "Walker" caught my interest, because of my interest in Izannah Walker. I've been waiting for the web to percolate up an image of Izannah Walker for over a decade now. It could be that her image is one of thousands of unlabeled early tintypes and photographs. Or it could be that Izannah Walker's picture is in someone's old photo albums labeled, and all they have to do is snap a picture with their phone and put it on the web. So in the interest of sending the call for Izannah Walker's image out into the universe, I give you this image of Antoinette Walker Gould, whose name I found in the 1918 list of women students at the University of Maine in Orono. It could be that someone is looking for Antoinette's image.
