So Very Young .........


MR. JOSEPH FAIRCHILD KNAPP

I would say this portrait is circa 1854 - 55 when Joseph became a full partner in the Lithography firm of Sarony, Major & Knapp. It's the youngest image of him I have ever seen. The portait below has been attributed to being Phoebe Worrall Palmer in 1855 and although the name is true the publisher thinks it is Mrs. Phoebe W Palmer 1807 - 1875. After careful study I believe it is her daughter, Miss Phoebe Worrall Palmer (1839 - 1908) the soon to be bride of Joseph F. Knapp.

PHOEBE circa 1855
