This is a foreign CdV that I purchased at an Antique Shop in Detroit lakes, Minnesota.
Nine guesses why I purchased this card? I believe that these children are..age nine or ten all the way on down. The little girl sitting down holding her brother or sister seems to be the oldest.
This is the back of the CdV. Stavanger is a city in Norway. Perhaps this photo was taken in 1891, or perhaps the photographer established his shop in 1891.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update on the Photographer from crex:
Børre (Børe) Mathias Norland. Born in Stavanger 30.12.1855, died 23.09.1920. Son of Sivert Sivertsen (1813-80) and Martha Gundersen (1824-1913), married l) with Guriana Blom, 3 sons, 2) with Rakel Johanne (23.12.1866-27.12.1948), 17 children.
"Sølvmedalje Skien 1891" means that he was awarded a silver medal at "Den almindelige Norske landsutstilling i Skien 1891" (sign) (the general Norwegian countrywide exhibition in Skien). Skien is a town in southeast Norway.
I guess it is likely that the photo was taken later then 1891.
Update from Inger:
Hi, I have a photo by B. Norland of my great grandfather Albert Larsen Barstad (born 1866) and his wife to be Theodora Birgitte Eriksen in Norway from between 1895-1895. There is a "medal" on the frame saying that B. Norland received a silver medal in Skien in 1891. The family on the photo might originally come from the Stavanger area in Norway.
B. Norland photo shops:
1891 ca-1920: filialer i Haugesund, Aalgaard og Maldemoen
1891 ca: Stavanger; Kirkegaden
1900 ca-1907: Stavanger;Østervåg
