Photo Number 657

This is an old photo from the Antique Shop in Park Rapids Minnesota.

Pr Antiques Hair and Glasses

The photo is from Clegg’s Studio in Marysville, O.  I find it interesting that Ohio is just known as O.

I drew a blank looking for info about the photographer. I will guess from the silvery look of the photo that it is from the 1910’s to 1920’s. Simple gold rimmed glasses that are shown off in profile, and a big old bow in her hair made this photo interesting to me.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  1. The photo is in excellent condition. Her modest, pure white dress and bow look nice. Though in profile, the glasses still look good.

  3. The dress is beautiful. The profile pose is unusual to me. I'm wondering about the bow though.

  4. I wonder what the pin on her chest is. A sorority pin, perhaps?

  6. Richard L. Glegg botn in England abt 1866, was the photographer. He moved from Maryville to Zanesville, Ohio between the 1910 and 1920 US censuses.

    Looks like your dating is "right on". :)

  7. I do so love the style of 1920s photos - they have a timelessness to them!
