A lady in a dress with a bustle and a pleated hem. It is kinda weird that she is leaning on that chair that is covered with a drape.

A young gal with a great big white bow, she is clutching something but I cannot tell what it is, flowers and a handkerchief?  Maybe.  She wears tiny earrings.

Oswald was the photographer at 1227 and 1229 Washington Ave N.  Minneapolis.

I find the Oswald Brothers Emil and Charles in business together at 1227 Washington Ave. N in the years 1887 to 1895.

Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
I think this is Chester Norman Howell (July 8, 1892 in Uniontown, Arkansas - Aug 20, 1964 in Okmulgee, Oklahoma

Chilocco Indian School was an agricultural school for Native Americans located in north-central Oklahoma from 1884 to 1980. It was located approximately 20 miles north of Ponca City, Oklahoma and seven miles north of Newkirk, Oklahoma, near the Kansas border. The name "Chilocco" is apparently derived from a Muscogee word meaning "big deer" or horse.

Arkansas City is about 7 miles north-northeast of the school.

Update from Iggy:
Charles Lewis Weathered (b. May 30, 1893 d. Jun. 19, 1957) in Norwich, Kingman County, Kansas - Find A Grave Memorial# 41521767. Norwich is 35 miles from Wichita.

The two men in the photo are brother-in-laws. Howard and Laura had Howard Jesse Jr. (b. Mar. 20, 1919 d. Jun. 1, 1997 : Find A Grave Memorial# 53646645) Howard Jesse Whitley Jr.'s memorial has an obituary that states he was survived by "a sister, Pauline Knapp of Bellflower, Calif."

Update:
 Isaac Emerson born June 9 1880 in Minnesota. Died June 20 1974 Goodhue County Minnesota. His parents were Ennert H. and Aase Buene. He married Anna S. Emerson. Siblings would be Rudolph, Joseph and Emma.

Iggy found out that he was a Minnesota Legislator from 1923 to 1930.   He graduated from the Minnesota School of Agriculture in 1903 so this is probably his graduation photo.

It is just a little smaller than a Cabinet Card. This photo is most likely from the 1880’s.  She is wearing a tight fitting jacket with a high white collar, lots of buttons and trims.  I will guess that she is 18 –20 years old.

Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:

Albert Marion Jones (6 Jun 1877 in Missouri - 19 Oct 1944 in Los Angeles) was the son of Mary Ann Ettinger/Weightman Jones.

It's a little confusing since Mary Ann apparently was widowed early (by 1900) and the census records of 1900, her last name is recorded as Ettiger and widowed. It would appear she was widowed twice?

She (Feb. 12, 1844 - Mar. 8, 1916) is Find A Grave Memorial# 91704256

ALbert's Uncle William (September 1871) was much younger than his mother - and maybe a half brother --

A family tree in Ancestry claims his parents are John Weightman (1817 – 1891) and Elizabeth Ann Siegrist (1826 – ?) Which would make his parents really oldsters then they had him.
