I have a few vague or humourous inscriptions on photos but my favourite is this photo on the left with the inscription:
"Merchant Maulsby, cousin Matilda’s father the meanest man that ever lived"
I also like this inscription on an 1860s cartes de visite (CDV) of Lydia Edwards. She does look ill or at the very least, depressed.
"Lydia Edwards, Grandfather’s wife and a great invalid"
What are some of the unusual writings you've ever found on an old photo?
