Photo Number 815

This is a Postcard from the first antique shop in Dorset Minnesota.

Postcard Azo Triangles Up Babyin chair  Dorset 1

I am sure many of you are shuddering about the animal fur..apparently it was a well used photographers prop.

I have no info on this photo other that It was taken by Halmrast Studios at Lake and Bloomington in Minneapolis Minnesota sometime between 1912 and 1915.  It is an Azo Postcard with Triangles pointing up in the corners so that dates it to 1904 to 1918 well within the time the photographer was active.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. Gotta love the knit booties though!

  2. Such a beautiful baby and look at all that hair!

  3. I much prefer baby photos from the 20th century with the faster cameras able to catch the sweet faces babies make!
