Photo Number 299

Uncle Ira

This is someones Uncle Ira.  The photo was taken by A. Brandmo.  His Photography Studio was in Montevideo, Minnesota from 1886 to 1896.  This is a young Ira, maybe 13 or 14 years old.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. A fine picture. What is he looking for so earnestly in the middle distance? And did he find it in his life?

  2. I wonder if the photo was given to his Uncle Ira? The labeling is a little... ambiguous.

    He is an ernest looking chap. Almost certainly dead now - unless he's extraordinarly long lived.

  3. Another interesting photo from long ago. Love his clothes.

  4. Great photo, I do love his important and earnest look!

  5. Handsome young man. I hope that his life turned out as nicely as his portrait.
