Photo Number 235

Two very dapper looking young men!  This is a real photo postcard, a KRUXO that has clubs in the corners where the stamp goes.  William Hartvig of Hallock, Minnesota took this photo in 1909 or 1910.  I am not sure if these guys are the same ones in Photo Number 232 or not..could be.
Thanks for stopping by do come again:)

  4. It really looks like they had a real parlor set up just to take photos. Neat old shots of history.

  6. I grew up in Kittson County, Minnesota. Hallock is our county seat. I am familiar with this old-time photographer. He sometimes worked with A.H. Anderson, who took infamous photos of the 1897 flood in our area. See http://56755.blogspot.com/2008/09/high-water.html
