Photo Number 1772

These are photos from the Then and Now Antique Shop in Alexandria Minnesota.

Arthur Stanz  Two Now and Then Alexandria

Arthur Stanz  Two Now and Then Alexandria back

Both photos are marked on the back with one name.  Arthur Stanz or Stauz or Stonz ?

Arthur Stanz Now and Then Alexandria

Now we have a clue.  Two men are wearing Minnesota shirts under their suits.  Do you suppose this was taken at the University of Minnesota?  A fraternity or some other men’s group.  There seems to be lots of trees in the photo…Forestry students?

These photos must be from the 1940’s or early 1950’s.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Very Christmas-y photograph! Wonder why the one has so many more people in it than the other. Glad, at least, that there was a name on the back.
