Photo Number 1244

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

They are holding hands!  The Groom has the top button fastened on his cutaway morning coat.  He wears a small corsage.  The Bride is wearing a gown with huge sleeves and many bows on the bodice and a bow on each sleeve.  She also wears a Bridal Bonnet trimmed with flowers and a small corsage.  Her dress is not black or white but some other color.

The Photo Studio was New York Portrait Co.  Do you suppose they just got off a ship?  I will guess that this photo was taken in about 1895.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. He is very handsome.

  2. I have seen a number of old portraits of men with only the top button of their coat fastened. It must have been a fashion of the time. Good post.
