Marie Isadora Lartigue
Marie Isadora Lartigue, born in 1901, poses for the photographer on a highly-decorated leather chair wearing a white dress with a locket on a chain around her neck. On the back of the photograph is written, "From Marie Dell Lartigue to Grandma, 9 months." Marie's grandmothers were Mary Salley Lartigue and Laura Stanley Dell, but the recipient of the photograph had to be Mary because Laura was no longer living at the time. Marie was the second child born to Dr. Etienne and Allie Lartigue. The middle name, "Dell," was an error-Marie's middle name was "Isadora." The middle name of her older brother, Gerard, was "Dell"-Gerard died before Marie's birth.
