Photo Number 1704

This is a snapshot from the antique shop in Park Rapids Minnesota.

Walking down the street PR Antiques

A lady in a hat walking down a sidewalk with a crack in it.  Did you ever hear that little sing song ditty “Step on a crack and break your Mother’s back?”  Not sure why we used to say that, I heard once it came from ancient times when you had to watch out for cracks and crevices on pathways.

I am finally done with the file of hat photos…thanks for sticking with me.  Tomorrow we will look at something else besides hats!

Thanks for stopping by.

Photo Number 1700

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the antique shop in Solway Minnesota.

Hats Postcard Azo Triangles up Soloway Antiques

A lady and a man…related?  maybe.  She sure has a large hat. This is an Azo Postcard that was used from 1904 to 1918.  I think this photo is closer to 1918.

Perhaps the “children” were home for the weekend and their Mother wanted a photo in front of her blooming plants on the porch.

Thanks for stopping by.

1700 photos can you believe it?  Many thanks to all of the readers out there and to everyone that helps get these photos back home!

This is a CdV from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.

Hat lady Miller photo DL Antiques CDV 1884 to 1889

Miller was the photographer at 417 and 419 Nicollet Ave. Minneapolis, Minn.  We can date this photo from 1884 to 1889.

Ladies dresses were severe or close fitting, often with high white collars with a brooch at the neck, lots of buttons, odd little hats, hair plain or with curls pulled back. She is a styling gal for the late 1880’s. 

Thanks for stopping by.
