My handsome husband purchased some old photos for me as a stocking stuffer..he has pretty good taste in old photos. He purchased these from an Antique Shop in Dorset, Minnesota.
John William Wood the photographer was in business in Lake City, Minnesota from 1884 to 1894. I think that this photo is from the second bustle period which was from 1883 to 1889..so I think we can narrow down the date from 1884 to 1889 for the date this photo was taken. It does not look like a wedding photo to me..no veil or flowers..but her ring is prominent and she is holding it in front of her. The gentleman is very duck footed..his toes point outward. This is a cabinet card.
Sister of Axel, Carl + Anna, Otto 1st cousins of

Is this a photo of Ida and August Johnson..perhaps?
Thanks for stopping by, do come again! The blizzard is still continuing here in Minnesota..Happy New Years Eve!:)
