This is a Cabinet Card from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Gilbert E. Flaten of Fargo ND was the photographer. His brother Ole was a photographer over in Moorhead Minnesota, they worked together in 1884. Then Gilbert opened his own studio in Fargo in the late 1880’s until 1893 when he sold his studio. He died in 1896.
I will date this photo 1893. I was impressed with these dresses, they are very much the same style just a different color. The women look like they could be sisters.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
