A bit of family history can been seen in the way the elder Gomes labeled his photos. His earliest work is marked Gomes and Company. Then in a few years we see the label Gomes and Son. Finally we see the label Gomes and Sons.Below is a rare image of A. C. Gomes and P. F. Gomes and the logos they used.
