Photo Number 775

This week we will look at some parents and or grandparents with small children.

I purchased this CdV at the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Mother and Child CdV Foreign Dl Antiques

The mother and child are both very beautiful. This is a foreign CdV.  The child’s plaid dress with the large collar and long bow in the back is really cute!

Towards the top there is a date 1908.  Tromso is a village in Norway that is North of the Artic Circle. They say the Northern Lights are fantastic there in the winter.  I think I might like to visit there.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. The photographer is Christian Hansen, 1863-1935. He had a studio in Tromsø from 1897 until he died, after which a daughter with husband took over, and from 1976 a grandson. The studio, still called "Chr. Hansen", closed in 1999.

  2. One of the prettiest photos you have shared! Interesting info in the above comment, too!

  3. Very pretty photo - I wonder if mother and child immigrated to the USA.

  4. This is one of my favorites so far. They are both beautiful!

  5. What a darling photo! I love it. Here's hoping it will soon find its home!

  6. Beautiful people those Norwegians! Thank you anonymous for sharing your info and for some of the most beautiful pictures of the Northern lights I have ever seen...they were breathtaking!

  7. Beautiful! I love the child's dress.

  8. What a lovely photo. So sad there are no names. :-(

  9. Since the Sun has spewed out a great deal of particles lately Norway has had a fantastic show in the sky several nights in a row. Even in the southern parts where I live.
