Pictures from an old Peck Photo Album

These photos are out of an old album that I believe made it's way down through the Peck and/or Soule Family of the Kensigton Area. The only name I see mentioned is A.W. Griswald of Guilford, CT and many of the photos are from Guilford, CT. I have figured out that some pictures show Wilbur Soule and Hattie Soule or Hariett Soule, and their daughter Helen Soule. The rest are still a mystery.

I scanned them in on an Epson 1640su scanner, then used Microsoft Picture It, Seirra Imaging's Image Expert to restore the photos. Some were in extremely poor shape and I'm very happy with the results.

If anyone wants a better copy of any of these pictures let me know. I comprimised between image quality and loading speed with these. As to the originals, if any historical association has a desire fot them let me know and it might be arranged.
