S.M. Hartwell was the photographer in De Kalb, ILL

Note the womans gown, the sleeves have dropped shoulders and you can see the woman’s ears…typical of the late 1860’s. This photo may very well go with the one from yesterday.  Same photographer, same type of card.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is a CdV from the Flea Market in Wadena Minnesota.

Old woman CDV Wadena Flea Mkt

A elderly lady.  Since this is only a half to three quarters photo I will guess it is from the 1870’s.  Her hair also fits that time, however her gown is from the late 1860’s with the dropped shoulders. Old woman CDV Wadena Flea Mkt back

J O Oleson of DeKalb, Ill was the photographer.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mr. Oleson is a native of Norway, born in 1845. In 1868 he emigrated to the United States and located in Chicago, at which time he began business as a photographer. In 1872, after serving under the best photographers in Chicago, he opened an establishment on his own account, and was eminently successful. He continued his residence in Chicago for ten years, coming to De Kalb, in 1878, where he established himself in his business, and for sixteen years was the only permanent photographer in the city.

I was curious about her hair, does she wear some sort of hat or is there a large bow at the back of her head.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is a CdV from the antique shop in Parkers Prairie Minnesota.

Bustle lady Parkers Prairie

A lovely lady has elaborate draping and pleating at the back of her gown.  I will guess this photo is from 1877 to 1882.  She also wears a peineta in her hair, a decorative hair comb popular in the 1880’s.

Thanks for stopping by.
