Photo Number 946

This is a CdV from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
CdV from norway very thin card DL Antiques
The cardstock is very thin.  I will guess that it is a CdV from the 1870’s.
CdV foreign very thin card back DL antiques
The Photographer was H. Krum of Throndhjem which I believe is a city in Norway.  Perhaps one of my readers can translate?

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from That Norwegian Guy:


The photo is indeed from Norway. The language on the back however is Danish (which comes as no surprise).
Transcript (as far as I understand it): Modtag denne Erindring som rækkes dig af din Ven og ... ved Seminariet
Translation: Accept this memory that is given you by your Friend and ... by the College of Education(?)



Th. Andersen
født 4/8 48.
which means this Theodor was born August 4th 1848.


Update from the Archivist:
The last part of the inscription reads, "...accept this remembrance given you of your friend and contemporary [samtidige] at the seminary [or teacher's college]." (ved= by, or at)

  1. Visiting the Norwegian "digital photo" link that has been left on previous photos from that country, one finds a Hans Krum, "Fotografi" active between 1854 up until his death in 1882 in T(h)rondhjem. "[The] Krum archive from 1855 is deposited in the Royal Norwegian Society real scientific library, about 6,800 sheets of glass [negatives]."

    There is (or was) a Throndhjem township in Otter Tail county.

    I think the name on the back says Theodore Andersen. There is a Theodore Andersen living in Otter Tail, born about 1831 (which would seem to jibe with the photo dating and the apparent age of the subject).

    I'm sorry I can't understand one of the words :(

    1. The missing word is "samtidige", which means "contemporary".

      My impression is that "Seminariet" refers to an institution/process for education of teachers (or possibly priests).

    Of course it's "Samtidige"! It's quite obvious now when I see it.
