Photo Number 2012

This is a Cabinet Card from the Antique Shop in Solway Minnesota.

Family with five children Solway Cab Card

T.J.Helgeson was the photographer in Lake Mills Iowa

A family photo with  parents and five children.  Looks like quite an age span between the girls and the boys.  The littlest child could be either a boy or a girl. This photo was most likely taken in the late 1880’s.

Sadly the photo is not marked.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Looks like a nice family, great photo.

  2. Maybe a family history buff will get pulled in on this site with the mention of Lake Mills, Iowa. It is a neat old photo.

  3. That's an interesting photo. Stocky and robust. I hope they had something to laugh about when not being photographed!

  4. Possibly the family shown on Find A Grave Memorial# 93352306.

    The mother looks like a match to the photo there.

    1. That might be her...the dates don't match up too well...her children were younger than those in the photo.
