Recently I was privileged to receive a digital copy of Louise Vitry’s son, Achille Courcelle.
The photo is very interesting because of it’s striking pose. In many photos from this time, the subject was very stiff and quite nervous looking due to the novelty of the technology and the length of time the subject had to hold the pose while the extended exposure was taken. Mr. Courcelle has an easy, relaxed, open pose. Also note the gold watch chain.

Hi Jeri. Achille Courcelle is my ancestor as well. I descend from his daughter Cora Courcelle Lasserre. This original photograph was in the possession of Cora Lasserre, daughter of Sidney Lasserre (named after her grandmother Cora Courcelle Lasserre). My cousins Brenda Kiefer and Judy Wilson shared this copy with me. The name is written in Cora Courcelle Lasserre’s handwriting. Please feel free to email me anytime. I have many unidentified photographs of the Courcelle family.
