This is a Cabinet Card from the antique shop in Solway Minnesota.
He looks very tall. She is holding his arm..which at this time would have been a great show of affection! Her dress has a ruffled trim along the hem.
On a side note. I have looked at some of the traveling gowns/dresses in the museum. Many of the black ones have different trims hand sewn along the bottom. I was told that the bottoms of the dresses got soiled easily and this was one way to keep them cleaner. One old lady remarked “They had to have extra trims for the bottom hems of their dresses because men spit their tobacco out in the street.”
This may be Uncle John and H. Von Koch. I have no idea why Eden Valley, Minn was scratched out and Berlin, Germany was entered.
The Photographer E. K. Gesme was in Eden Valley from 1894 top 1895. Perhaps he took a trip to Germany and took photographs while he was there.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
