Hi,
I have a print of GA Holmes. It is "Can't You Talk" Probably belonged to my Grandparents who live in Philadelphia. It is not in good condition but I recently purchased a document frame top try to preserve It. Can you give me the complete story that is on the back ? Parts are missing. Such a sweet discription of the subjects.
Thank You

Sorry I don't know that picture and can't trace it at all.

Thank you for trying to trace this picture. It is a baby crawing and and a Collie and a kitten on a porch outside the kitchen door. I have taken a picture with my digital camera and could forward it to you if I had an e mail address.
Again Thank-you for trying to help me on this subject.

Thank you but I really can't think of any way to tell you more.

Hello, I am French Canadian and I am living in Quebec, and I have the same " Can't you talk " By G.C.Holmes but in the back, it's written with a note Can't you talk? By G.A.Holmes. It's not the same name on the front and in the back. And the dimension is 14 X 11. Hoping somebody else have the same paint or picture. And excuse my english writting.
Best regards,
