Photo Number 347
Meet Fred Hickle, he is the last in this series of old photos from an Antique Shop in Grand Rapids Minnesota, and with this photo we come to the end of the Mystery of Aunt Fan. We know a little more about her and her family. There were several other CdV’s that were marked just like these at the Antique Shop. I have asked someone to purchase them for me, I have not heard if they were successful or not.
This is the back of Fred’s CdV. I did find out that the Sun-Beam Gallery was in operation using this logo from 1866-1880 so we can date this photo sometime during that time.
I will mail these CdV’s off to Ruth in Texas. She seems to be the only relative that we are going to find. When I have heard back from her I will do a Full Circle Post.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update: Iggy found this info about Fred..thanks Iggy!
