Scope and content

Photo-set Three consists of a combination of black and white photographs focusing on Elise Gieser, from her youth to her 90th birthday celebration at her family’s historic Bonita Vista Estate. The photographs in this collection are not limited to one singular envelope, so I would suggest a means for keeping them filed together whenever they are processed to be in their final housing. While not as prominently featured as her sister, Marion Gieser is also present in many photographs in this group. The dates of these photos range from the 1920-1935, with the newer photographs being dated around 2000. Also included is a printout of her obituary in the Chicago Tribune, and an informational book of the Bonita Vista Estate estimated to be from the 1930’s.
