Louis de Saint-Ferjeux, 10 July 1889, Vesoul, France
This image of Louis de Saint-Ferjeux was taken at the E. Koch Studio in Vesoul, France on 10 July 1889. I found it an an antique store in Victoria, BC last week. I haven't been able to find out much about Louis. I did discover that a person with the same name wrote a book (en français) called "La Vie politique sous la Restauration (Politics Under the Restoration)" in 1904. But it was probably penned by another Louis de Saint-Ferjeux, considering the boy in the photograph would have only been about 18-19 years old.
I came up equally empty on the photographer, E. Koch. Any French research specialists out there?
