This is a Cabinet Card from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
The photographer is N. A. Preston Eau Claire, Wis.
A frail looking child and his/her father. I will guess it is a boy? What do you think? Just like in the Walt Disney Movies..I wonder where is the Mama? You can see a posing stand behind the chair.
The gentleman has rough looking but gentle hands..he works out of doors for sure. The top button of his jacket is buttoned that makes me think this photo could have ben taken in the early 1880’s. His trousers appear to have somewhat of a striped pattern that was popular in the 1880’s. Wisconsin became a State in 1848..so that is of no help.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
