Well we made it..500 photos..hard to believe that I have purchased that many old forgotten photos. Today’s photo is one that I purchased at the Antique Shop in Dorset, Minnesota.
This is quite a group. I think it might be the Beim Austria singing society. The photo was taken July 25, 1915. From what I read..a Liedertafel was a like minded group of people from the same area that liked to sing. This photo has men lifting glasses of beer, some with cigars and the one in back in the center with a sheave of plant material of some kind and the fellow in the center of the photograph with a concertina.
Friedrich Hamann 1139 Eighth St. is stamped on the back. I found out that a Freidrich Hamann was an Alumni of the University of Wisconsin in 1910 and he lived at 1139 Eighth St in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was a teacher. I will speculate that he did photography in his spare time.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
I have been retained as the new Director of the local Historical Society. I hope to continue blog posts daily, I usually write them one day and publish them the next day early in the morning. If I miss a day or two over the summer, or if I am slow to update information you will know why. I have been working on a whole month of photos for June. Wedding Photographs…do you think you will get bored with 30 photos from all different years? Only a few of them are marked with names. Other than that I will try to continue the weeks with some kind of focus..is there any type of photo that you would like to see? I have kids in chairs, kids and wheels, baby carriages, hats, hair, buildings, high school photos, nurses week( May 6 to 12), gals with glasses, farm photos, foreign photos, summer photos and a number of misc folders. I am open to suggestions…Connie:)
