Photo Number 1200

This is a photo from  the antique shop in Solway Minnesota.

A group of smiling children standing in the brush.  Kind of a strange place to take a photograph..there is some kind of a line that runs through the photo.  I double checked the photo it is not a crease.

Maybe it is a telephone line?   Getting a telephone line and a telephone was a big deal!  I will guess this photo is from around 1910 – 1915.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. It is a neat photo. It says a lot about the time as the shoes and clothes that they are wearing. I also noticed the light exposure changes from left to right. Maybe a developing error and not a camera error.

  2. They look pretty happy! I'd be happy about a telephone line too.

  3. That is a really curious placement. The one boy's face is obscured by the undergrowth. The trees are so bare - but they don't seem to be cold.

    At first I thought the wire might of been a fence wire... now I'm not sure!
