PENSIVE AND PRETTY GIRL WITH LONG HAIR IN LINCOLN, NEBRASKA

by bmarshphd

A pensive and pretty young girl with very long hair poses for her portrait at the LeGrande studio in Lincoln, Nebraska.  She is wearing a necklace,  a collar pin, and a dark dress. Resarch found information concerning the LeGrande Studio to be sparse. At one point in time, the studio was located at 1245 Twelfth Street in Lincoln and its proprietors were named Speake and Peirson. Jefferson Grant Speake (1863-?) was listed in the 1891 and 1893 Lincoln Business Directory. He was listed as a photographer and owned the LeGrande studio. He is noted in the 1900 US census, and both he and his wife of 13 years, Hattie E. Speake (1863-?) appear in the census as living in Omaha, Nebraska and both Jefferson and Hattie were reported to be photographers. The 1902 Omaha business directory also lists Jefferson Speake as a photographer. No information could be found about Mr. Peirson, Speake's Lincoln business partner.
