Nelson Kelley Hamilton was born in Portsmoth Ohio in 1915. He lived his some of his early married years in Athens Ohio. He was a photographer at heart from a young age. This page has a variety of photos from Athens Ohio and maybe other area. They were scanned from mostly tiny prints of 1X1.5 inches. They provide a nice glympse of that time
