An unknown barefoot boy from Goldsboro.
I have to confess that I have a crush on this young handsome Carolina boy. His portrait was in a collection of pictures that belonged to my husband’s great-grandmother, Ophelia Rose Barnes. From other family photos, I think this young lad was from the Rose family, and not the Barnes side. He looks a lot like one of Ophelia’s brothers, William Preston Rose.
Alexander A. Miller had a photography studio in Goldsboro, Wayne County, NC, and we have other lovely photos taken by him. They have a nice gentle feel, that transcends the generations passed since they were taken. Here’s a quote about A. A. Miller:
The first long-term permanent operator in Goldsboro was Alexander A. Miller (1857-1936). He ran his photography business from the 1880s to 1930 from his West Center Street location [http://www.usgwarchives.net/nc/wayne/waynebios.htm].
