Photo Number 1208

This is a photograph from the antique shop in Brainerd Minnesota.

Long Photo Cute boy Brainerd Antiques

Anderson’s Studio in Milnor N. D. was the photographer.  His full name was Haldor (Walter) Anderson, from what I could gather he came to American from Norway in about 1870 and he lived in Minnesota a short time before moving to Milnor ND.  He apparently operated a Photo Studio for many years. I have seen these long bookmark type photos of his before.  He seemed to like them.

Sadly we have no idea who the little boy is.  Someone who lived near Milnor ND in the 1920’s or 1930’s.  The child is posed near an old ice cream parlor stool/table and he is holding some kind of toy.  He wears a suit that is sailor inspired.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. Such a sweet photo.

  2. I love this one. I've never seen this long kind of photo.

  3. Now this is the photo that makes me think, "Shame... no one knows who it is!"

  4. What a cheerful-looking little guy!
