This is a photo from fellow blogger Nancy. 

Nancy wrote: A friend found this photo in the disbanded Eagles Club. I will gladly send it to you for your Forgotten Old Photographs blog.  All the soldiers are identified but the place & year are mysteries.
Hopefully it can find a good home.

Lots of Luck Helen

Sis - Remember the good old days when we had so much fun.  And now suddenly it’s all over at least our high school days.  I hope we see each other after we’re out of school.  Good Luck to you and Moe.

I am thinking that the gal that kept these photos was known as Sis….and her beau is Moe.

Thanks for stopping by.

Photo Number 1908

This is a Cabinet Card from Craig’s Collection.
Mrs Moll CRaigs
The photographer is R.W. Hubbell from Red Wing Minn
I found that he was an active photographer from 1886 to 1893.
I will guess this one is taken closer to 1886 because it looks like this gown might have a bustle.   The Cabinet Card also has a pink back that was seen from 1880 to 1890.

Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Iggy:
There is a chance this is Amanda Malvina Gurley Moll. (She was born in 1847 and married in 1865 and died in 1886.)

I believe her husband, Justus Bernard Moll worked for the railroad Chicago-Milwaukee-St. Paul-Pacific known as the Milwaukee Road that went through Red Wing.
