Photo Number 818

This week we will look at some ladies hair and hair adornments.  Today I will share this grouping of photos.  I purchased it at The Tin Ceiling in Park Rapids Minnesota.

Top photo Feb 14 1904 18 years old second photoMarch12 1904 16 years old  Tin Ceiling PR

The middle photo is marked February 14 1904  eighteen years of age..  The last photo is marked March12 1904 and then May 8 1904 Age 16 yrs.  The top photo is not marked. 

These girls all have “updos” with bows.  The gal in the bottom photo must have had some kind of hair form to do her updo.

There are tiny holes punched into the cards that are 2 3/4 by 3 1/2.  The photos are 1 1/2 inches by 2 inches. Galbraith of Minneapolis was the photographer.  He was at Washington Ave North in Minneapolis from 1900 to 1915.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. Interesting way of grouping photos. They look like sisters to me.

  2. Even if you had not set this series for hair adornment, most of us could not help but notice this distinctive feature. One of the funniest things I have seen is little girls copying their mom, doing make-up. Then they grow older, and almost expected to do nothing less. The pictures show what is true even today. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh my that last one is quite a pompadour!

  4. Whoa Nellie! That last one slept wrong or something....mine does that sometimes but I have hairspray and pins to tame it with. Maybe that was the start of "big hair"...was she from Texas?

    1. The Photography studio was in Minneapolis Minnesota..the girl could have been from anywhere:)
