Photo Number 145
This is a photo that I got at an Antique Shop in Perham , Minnesota. It is a Cabinet Card. There are no names on the back. It could be brothers..who knows? The fellow on the right has an unusual bow tie..it is plaid..
I did find out a little about the photographer at Elite Studio. His name was O H Mulvane he was located Over 6E Main in Lead, South Dakota. Upstairs his neighbors were a Dentist and a Doctor...they were located above a Drug Store..at least that is what the 1909 list of businesses in Lead says. Lead was quite a little gold mine..with the Homestake Mine putting it on the map in 1877.
I have a hard time making Miners out of these fellows..they look more like card sharks. I will date this photo at 1905.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
