This is someones Uncle Ira. The photo was taken by A. Brandmo. His Photography Studio was in Montevideo, Minnesota from 1886 to 1896. This is a young Ira, maybe 13 or 14 years old.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
A fine picture. What is he looking for so earnestly in the middle distance? And did he find it in his life?
I wonder if the photo was given to his Uncle Ira? The labeling is a little... ambiguous.He is an ernest looking chap. Almost certainly dead now - unless he's extraordinarly long lived.
Another interesting photo from long ago. Love his clothes.
Great photo, I do love his important and earnest look!
Handsome young man. I hope that his life turned out as nicely as his portrait.Norkio
