Photo Number 650

This is a CdV from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Young girl plaid dress front CdV DL Antiques

A young girl in a plaid dress..who may have just graduated from school..perhaps the sixth grade?  She doesn’t look old enough to me to be in the eighth grade.

Adam Heeb was at 651 8th Street in Milwaukee in 1889 and this photo was most likely taken before that time.

I say that because it is a CdV and not a Cabinet Card and I bet that this dress has a bustle…

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. I maintain, fashion comes and goes, elegance and modesty remain. These dresses do make even young girls look taller.

  2. A pretty dress for a pretty young lady.

  3. The boots might make her taller too - LOL - Platform Boots... who'd of thunk it.

  4. Sixth grade sounds right. My grandmother who was a Maryland country girl only did 6 grades and had a "graduation". The idea of a bustle on such a young girl seems as odd as some of the fashions today.
