A group photograph taken about 1916-18 of Pike Thomas and Bessie Nash Thomas with several unidentified people. I think this is probably a family photograph and these other people might be Nash relations of Bessie.

pier1.jpg pier2.jpg

Two photographs taken at a pier. These photographs are of different people, but holding the same stringer of fish.The dates are not known, but probably about 1920. The location is Florida, probably Jacksonville (Beach), but perhaps on the west coast around the Tampa - St. Petersburg area. The only known people are the younger woman in the middle of the first photo, Bessie Nash Thomas and Bessie's son, Louie Nash Thomas, in the second photo. I am assuming the other people are related to Bessie.

Two beach photographs. Like above, the location is Florida, and probably Jacksonville (Beach), but perhaps on the west coast around the Tampa - St. Petersburg area. The date is not known, but from the appearance of the bathing attire, I'm guessing about 1920. The only known person is the woman on the right of the first photo, Bessie Nash Thomas.
