Photo Number 898

This is a photo from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Animal skin rug DL Antiques 1898 1899

A lovely couple posed on one of those old photographers stand by an animal rug.  The bride is wearing a pastel colored skirt and jacket  with a white blouse and a long wedding bonnet that is adorned with flowers.  Both the bride and the groom are wearing a corsage of flowers and they are showing off their rings quite nicely.  We even have a couple that seem to be looking at the photographer and they are almost smiling!

I think this photo is from 1898 or 1899.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

  1. Excellent find! The colors of the gown were probably blue and white.

    This chair appears to be the same design as this one:

    But they are not the SAME chair.

  2. What a lovely couple. That is some head ornament. I would think that was pretty elaborate back in the day. He looks very dashing indeed.

  3. The style of dress reminds me of the "Eton" jacket and skirt. See here for a modern example. http://trulyvictorian.com/gallery2/main.php/v/comments/AL1.jpeg.html The trim on her skirt was quite popular - I have several photographs with the trim curving up toward the back, like a smile.
