Photo Number 633

This is a Cabinet Card that I purchased at the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Gal with hair clip DL Antiques

I will guess that this photo was taken about 1895.  Her dress seems to have wings on the shoulders, which was very stylish about that time.  She has a very ornate celluloid hair clip.

J.H. Hamlin was in Casselton Dakota/North Dakota during the 1880’s and 1890’s. Dakota was split into North and South in 1889.

The trim on her dress is lovely, I am seeing it as dark brown trim on a green dress.  She must have beautiful red hair..what do you imagine?

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. I wonder where that "comb in the hair" look came from... were they mimicking indian's head dresses?

  2. Don't you know that hair clip would bring a fortune today?

    She does appear to be fair with red hair. I would love the dress to be brown with black trim. No matter the color, it is lovely!

    Enjoy your day. Thanks for sharing your photos with us, Connie.

  3. I have found many photos like this at yard sales over the years. Once I talked a person about putting the photo albums back in their closet for future generations.

  4. Lovely vintage photos! You have a wide and great collection of these kind of cards. They're all fabulous!

  5. Could the ornament be similar to Spanish combs? They usualy had a veil though.
