This is a cabinet card that I purchased in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
This couple has matching corsages:) We have another dark dress with beautiful trim and a wedding bonnet adorned with trailing leaves and flowers. The groom seems short, or perhaps the bride was tall. This is a photo from the Flaten brother Gilbert E that worked with his brother Ole over in Moorhead in the early 1880’s. He moved over to Fargo in 1888.
This is the back of the cabinet card. Gilbert E Flaten was at 506 Front Street from late 1888 or 1889 and then at 722 Front Street from 1890 to 1893. ( In 1893 to 1895 he was at 67 Broadway). So I can date this photo 1888 to 1893. I would think that the brides dress looks more 1893 with the large puffy sleeves. She is showing off her ring in the photo.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
