The envelope this negative was in says, “Miss Georginna Perkins, 202 Hillside Ave Nutley, N. J. #89 - (Aug 19, 1935).”
Why I believe this to be the individual.
• The 1938 Nutley Directory (Belleville, NJ) lists Georgianna M Perkins, a student residing at 202 Hillside Ave. Also at that address are F Carroll & Elizabeth M Perkins. Mr. Perkins is a div supt NY (division superintendent, New York).
• I was surprised to see 10 photos of Georgiana in the Ethel Wight Studio Collection—more than any other person I’ve seen. Until I found a March 9, 1939, article in the Biddeford Daily Journal which read, “Mrs. F. Carroll Perkins and daughter, Georgiana, of Nutley, N.J., are guests of Miss Ethel Wight of Fort Hill Avenue.” So, they must be good friends.
• A September 29, 1938, obituary for Henry B. Bennett mentions he was a selectman in Old Orchard Beach and was survived by two daughters, Mrs. Earl C. McAllister and Mrs. F. Carroll Perkins and his granddaughters Georgiana and Priscilla Perkins.
• Ancestry Family Trees for Henry Babbitt Bennett indicate he and Georginna had two children, Lilla Irene and Elizabeth Mildred “Bessie” Bennett. Elizabeth married Francis Carroll Perkins and had two daughters, One was Georgiana June Perkins (born 23 Jun 1918 in Uutky, Essex, New Jersey. She married Harry Frank O’Hara on 30 August 1942.
This is a photo of Georgiana about 1935.
