Photo Number 2153

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

Heighstedt of 226 & 228 Washington Ave Minneapolis Minn was the photographer. He was in business there from 1890 to 1897.

The couples clothing looks early 1890’s to me. In fact the mans suit being buttoned only at the top was very popular about 1885.

The back of the card shows a different photographer but at the same address. Oleson Gallery…it seems Mr. Andrew Heighstedt married Anna G. Oleson in 1889 and took over the Oleson Studio renaming it.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I wonder what Minneapolis looked like in the mid-1880s!
