We will end this kids in chairs week with this Cabinet Card from the Antique Mall in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
A beautiful black card by Leonard in Racine Wis. They are beautiful children! The little girls are wearing identical dresses with huge lace collars. If you look closely there is a posing stand behind the little boy.
This is the artwork on the back of this cabinet card.
P.F. Leonard was a pioneer photographer. He came to Racine in 1847, he left to perform with a stage band and while in Macon Georgia he was talked into becoming a band conductor, he learned photography on the side. In 1879 he returned to Racine and opened his studio at 333 Main Street. He died in 1904 and his son Harry took over his business.
