Photo Number Thirty-Nine
This is Margaret Peters, this is a photo that came from South Dakota. It was taken by Andre in Dixon, Illinois.
I have a request in at the Lee County Historical Society for information about the Andre Studio. So far I have not heard back. If I hear something from them..perhaps I will donate the photos back to them!
I will guess that this is a 1910 photo.. that dress must have been itchy and hot in the summertime.
Thanks for dropping by, come again:)
Update*** I think I found Margaret's Obituary
