Photo Number 1215

This is a photo from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Osage Iowa cute kids DL Antiques

A small boy and a baby.

The photographer was Vosburgh Studio of Osage Iowa.  In 1911 Vosburgh left his son Harold in charge of the Photo Studio in Austin Minnesota and moved to Osage Iowa.  So we can date this photo after 1911.  The little boy seems to be wearing knickers or short pants which were quite popular through 1920.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. The boy looks very much like my brother Larry when he was young.

  2. I wonder if that's a little brother or sister?

  3. I love the attempt at casualness. The baby looks like it was just flopped down and is busy watching what this strange person with the box is doing. But the boy, he's got his fingers turned under on the chair arm. I bet he was nervously scratching the wood, hoping this would all be over.

  4. Looks like that suit still had a lot of "growing into" room left.

  5. I was thinking like Jacqi, "That suit coat is waaaaaaaaay too big!"
