A Young Violinist from Reading, PA

The style and size of the photo suggests a little later date for this young musician. Certainly after 1875 and perhaps to 1885. Unfortunately the name Lehman is very common in Pennsylvania so I can find no reliable connection to Reading, Pennsylvannia. The question mark after the name does suggest it was added much later, when the writer was in doubt about the accuracy of memory, and I like to think the writer was Dany's music teacher. The direct gaze and assured stance of the young pupil, makes me imagine this as a treasured photo of a proud teacher.
