Photo Number 476
I purchased this photo at the Antique Shop in Motley, Minnesota..the one with the Ice Cream Shop. No, I did not have Ice Cream..but there are two Antiques Shops in town and I had to distinguish between the two.
I bought this photograph because of her shoes.
I think she looks much older than him and believe it to be a Mother and Son..although I am often wrong.
( Many of the readers think that this is a couple..they could correct! )
This photo was taken by a photographer named MacDonald at Lindsay ONT. When I took the photo out to check for names I found it to be a Real Photo Postcard, an Azo from the years 1904 to 1918. I think that the womans clothing leans more toward the 1918’s.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from Norkio:
I would also agree as to her fashion being closer to 1918 with the slightly raised hem of her skirt. Even a couple inches was scandalous! :-)
BTW you can still buy those boots. I have had several pair over the years and they are very comfortable. These were probably made from a double last making them actual left and right shoes and like what we wear today. Shoes in the 19th century were made on a single last and you broke them in to your feet.
