Photo Number 1153

This is a photo from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Alveda Carlson DL Antiques
A young lady with a huge bow in her hair, adorned with a corsage, who is wearing gloves and holding a rolled up diploma.  This is most likely a photo from around 1905 to 1910.  Her pigeon breasted gown is very ornate.

  3. What an incredible bow! And her collar seems so high, too. Looks scratchy!

    Glad to see there was a name on the reverse, and a possible match already!

  5. Isn't it a great feeling when a rescued photograph makes real connections to someone's life and family? Good work.
