Photo Number 128

Look at these little ones..all dressed up for the winter!  They are obviously part of a well to do family.  This photo was taken at Swen (corrected to Swem)  in Fargo North Dakota. ..I couldn't find out anything about the photographer. There are no names on this photo..beautiful children with no names..at least not known to us.   I found this photo in an Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.  I will guess that this photo was taken sometime around 1920.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
It is Swem  Photographers.  TM Swem more than likely, he had a business in Fargo North Dakota from 1900 to 1913.  So we can date this photo much earlier than I guessed:) 


  1. Beautiful children and such exquisite clothes.

  2. I love the little girl's bonnet and outfit!

  3. These two children are so adorable. I find it so sad that these photos end up separated from families that could enjoy them as part of their family's history. ~Abra

  4. That is a seriously fluffy coat and bonnet! Beautiful children. Wish we knew who they were. You know, as I look at the embossing, it looks like SWEM, could that just be my monitor?

  5. Thanks Noriko..I corrected it! Now that I realize it is Swem..I have some photographer info:)
