Photo Number 677

This is a Cabinet Card from the Antique Shop in Solway.

Young Man St Paul Nebraska Soloway Antiques Cab Card

The photographer was Charles G. Henderson, he is listed in a 1890 Business Directory for Howard County Nebraska. He was born in 1860 in Illinois.  Nebraska became a State March 01, 1867.

This is a young lad..maybe 15 years old.  The top button of his coat is buttoned.  That was the style from the late 1870’s to early 1880’s.  However in this situation I think it is just his personal style.

I cannot place the photographer in Howard County in 1880..only 1890 and I found him in nearby York County in the 1900 census. 

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. He's a handsome young man. I imagine he was very happy with this photo.

  2. That is some fancy looking tile in the background.

    I wonder who the boy was... and what became fo him.

  3. I like the backdrop how it has the fireplace in it. Makes it look all the more homey.

  4. My Aunt Ruby Burgus was married to a Frank Henderson. I really don't know the family tree but sometimes relatives show up from strange places. I will forward this to my first cousin, Joan Henderson Calison to see if she has records of this guy. She is our family tree guru for oh so many families.
