Photo Number 1015

This week we will look at some of the hair styles that are in old photos.  I am not an expert chime in if you have information to share.  This Cabinet Card is from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Frothy looking Dress DL Antiques 1896-1899

This young lady wears her hair in an up do with the bulk of her hair gathered into a twist or a knot at the top of her head.  Her hair appears to be quite curly especially in the front..either natural or by the use of curling irons. 

She wears a beautiful frothy looking gown with huge sleeves.

The photographer was Martin F. Heinzelman of Owatonna, Minn.  He was in Owatonna during the years 1896 to 1899.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. O.K., I'm paying close attention. I always like to be able to narrow down the date with hairstyles and clothing if i can.

  2. The clothes and the hairstyle look mighty uncomfortable!
