This is one of the photos from Craig’s Collection.

J M Lenz was the photographer in Davenport.  Iowa most likely.  Yes I found him in Iowa.

Hans Meeves
He looks to me like he is about 20 yeats old and the photo was taken about 1885.  The button on the top of the suit coat is the only one buttoned which is very typical of that time period.
Thanks for stopping by.
