Meta's Friends From Hoboken

Tina Bunger seated on left. Meta seated on the right. Standing, Annie

Note: This photo and the next three photos are tintypes. Because of the nature of the tintypes, the intregrity of the image tends to become compromised if I try to clean them up too much. I cleaned up most of the black and white specs in this photo, but otherwise left it as scanned. Notice the finger prints.

Collection of Helen Land

Tina (Katherine) Bunger was a close friend of Meta and Annie's. As this picture shows they knew each other when they were quite young. In 1905 Tina's father, Henry, kept a saloon at 224 River Street (1905 N. J. Census). Tina Bunger married William Heuer.


Meta seated on left. Other's unknown.

Note: I cleaned up Meta's face and blouse a little, but otherwise left this tintype as it was scanned.

Percy is standing on the porch and some child is leaning out from the porch. His head is between Millie and Tina's heads. In this picture it is not possible to detrmine who he is. However, he is in the same possition in the photo above. In the other photo it is clear that he is Bud Land. Based on his clothing, it is the same person.

This photo was obviously cut.
