This is a photo that came my way by South Dakota. It was taken in Sterling, ILL at Brown Studio. EC Brown was the Photographer and he was a businessman in Sterling from 1888 to ? I know he was in business in Sterling in 1896 and 1897 because he shows up in a list of businessman for those years.
Anyway, look at these kids..possibly brother and sister..I love his slicked down hair.. and isn't she just as cute as she can be with little ribbons in her hair. I will date this photo at 1897..what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by, come again:)
*** Update: I found these names on the back of the photo Angela and Leo Franklin
