P.H. Tallman was a photographer from Blooming Prairie, Minnesota. He was in that area from 1898 to 1900 and then again in 1906.

On a side note, Blooming Prairie was named by a railroad executives wife after she saw all the wooden shacks that made up the settlement.  Blooming Prairie is located in South Eastern Minnesota.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. Excellent find!

    That little one is spoiled and older sister is on her way to floor length hair.

  2. Cute picture and the older sis has such long hair.

  3. I almost expect the boy behind the chair to sing like Alfalfa from the Little Rascals.

  4. I agree Iggy. Mom must have made the sister with the long hair take out the braid. I think I've seen the same look on my daughter's faces when they didn't want to do something I suggested.

  5. that hair got my attention, too!
