Photo Number 1931

This is a Cabinet Card from the antique shop in Alexandria Minnesota.
Rautio Alex Antiques
Werner was the photographer in Marquette, Mich
The groom wears the obligatory three piece suit with flowers in his lapel.  The bride wears a white gown with lacy trim, the gown has a high neck.  She wears a flower on her dress and a full length bridal bonnet adorned with flowers.  I can also see her wedding band.

On the front of the photo on the right side is a photographers note in pencil…1col woman.  On the back also in pencil are what appear to be instructions…hair, eyes etc… since it is pencil it is really hard to read.  I think I have deciphered a name Mr. Rautio  723 Washington.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. There are a number of Rautio's living in Marquette, Michigan, and there is even a 723 Washington Street in Marquette.

    The photographer appears to have been Gustav or Gustavus A Werner who worked in Marquette from at least 1895 - 1920.

    I think this couple might be:

    Name: John Rautio
    Gender: Male
    Birth Year: abt 1882
    Birth Place: Finland
    Marriage Date: 14 Dec 1907
    Marriage Place: Marquette, Marquette, Michigan, USA
    Age: 25
    Residence Place: Marquette, Michigan
    Father: Matt Rautio
    Mother: Ida Lehtonen
    Spouse: Sanni Wanconpan
    Spouse Gender: Female
    Spouse Age: 25
    Spouse Birth Place: Finland
    Spouse Residence Place: Marquette, Michigan
    Spouse Father: Matt Wanconpan
    Spouse Mother: Mary Knoppa

    They lived at 812 Bluff Street (one block from 723 Washington) - perhaps her parents lived on Washington?

    This Rautio was railroad bridge carpenter.
