1905 Graduation Photograph of George Gould, Technical High School at Providence, Rhode Island


1905 graduation photograph of George Gould, a student at the Technical High School at Providence, Rhode Island.

The photograph itself is 4" x 3"; the piece mounted is 10" x 7".  It was found with 15 similar photographs of 6 other men and 9 women.  Most of the photographs, if not all, were taken by the Edgar K. Horton studio of Providence.

A list of the people in the photographs appears at the end of this post.



From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome!]

I found several possibilities for a George Gould in the Providence, Rhode Island area during the relevant time frame.

It's possible that the young man in the photograph was George Herbert Gould, born 7 December 1886 at Attleboro, Massachusetts, son of George A. and Elizabeth (Wilson) Gould.

This George Gould married Grace Green of Canada and was a civil engineer who worked for the City of Providence, Rhode Island.  They had at least two children, both sons.

If you have a theory about the identity of the George Gould in the graduation photograph, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  Thanks!
