Photo Number 140

Today we will begin a week of photographs featuring men.  I believe I am gravitated toward photographs of women and children...but men should be appreciated too!   This is a cabinet card taken by Samuel Petri or Ernest Svenson at their studio in Minneapolis , Minnesota. They were in business there from 1894 to 1915.  I will date this photo at 1915.   He has a cool looking tie, it is one of the reasons that I chose this photo at the Antique Shop in Perham, Minnesota.  This young man will remain an unknown as the card is not marked with a name.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again! :)

One of my regular readers and commenters has begun an blog featuring her Gram's Recipe Box..you might want to check it out! :)

  1. He is very handsome and the tie looks crocheted to me.
