No. 17 today
No. 17 before our time.How do we begin to describe what is felt by our connection to this picture? Anna CHLADKOVA lived in this house in 1838 and since she was born in 1820, that would have made her 18 years old. You ask, who was this Anna....She is the paternal grandmother of our g-grandfather, Frank KRAJICEK, who is the father of our grandmother, Louise Krajicek Blood.
Is Anna in this picture? One would have to study Cezch photography history to see what the possibilities are. The original of the picture was shown to Shannon's researcher by the husband of current owner of the property. The reseracher was told that several CHALDEK generations lived at the farm. Whether Anna is in the picture or not, the surroundings, clothing, buildings, etc. would have been nearly the same.
Just a quick glance at websites concerning photography history in eastern Europe lets us know that taking this picture was a big deal.
