This photo is marked William Meurer..or Meurir. It is from the South Dakota bunch. Possibly the child in this photo is related to John from yesterday in Photo number Ninety-five. I know, another boy dressed in a dress..that is just the way it was..his hair is also parted on the side. That is some beautiful wicker chair! I could not find any info about the photographer H N Kent in Amboy, ILL. I did run onto a little story about how Amboy got it's name. People were talking and someone asked a young Native American boy what the area was called and he replied "Am boy".
This is a cabinet card..and I would like to date it about 1866, the artists palette was used on cabinet cards during that time, but it doesn't seem that old to me..it seems more like 1896. This is one of those photos that you really would like a birth date to nail it down for certain.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
