Vina and Joe Poirier were photographed by August Sornson in and near his home "studio" on his farm near Dixie, Washington in 1909. Images were copied from glass negatives of various sizes and condition courtesy of Judy Benzel.

 The brothers August and Isaac Sornson each had a similar camera. Here one camera has captured the other being held by an unknown woman.

...and the guitar.
