This is a Cabinet Card, Halvorsens was in business only two years 1886 and 1887. This photo came from an Antique Shop in Park Rapids, Minnesota. Perhaps someone will be able to tell us more about the little girls shoes..are these the kind of shoes that you needed one of those button hooks for? I wonder what the Gentleman did for a living? Do the girls look like twins to you? There isn't much difference in height and they are dressed exactly the same.
Thanks for stopping by! Do come again:)
