Photo Number 1925

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

O.E. Flaten used the Halstad address in 1894 and 1895 so that is the date we will pick for this photo.

I bought this photo for three reasons.  Can you guess why?

sitting couple  DL Ant

The handsome groom wears a three piece suit and a white bow tie along with a watch fob and a flower in his lapel.  The bride wears a not light not dark colored gown.  The gown has ruffles and trims on the bodice, the sleeves are huge also with ruffles.  The bride wears a full length bridal bonnet trimmed with flowers, she carries a bouquet and I believe there are flowers around her neck too.

Now did you guess? 

1.  I collect Wedding Photographs!

2. The groom is blonde.

3. The crochet work that adorns the small table where the groom is resting his arm.

Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Yes it is, he was a very prolific photographer! :)

  2. The couple has the typical pose of the era. I.e., they don't look very happy.
