This is a photo from Craig’s Collection.
Mrs Robert Craigs
The photographer was Sweet in the Cramer Block in North Baltimore.
The lady in the photo is Mrs. Robert Gable.
I will guess that this photo was taken in about 1890-1895 before 1888

Update from Iggy:

This might be Lydia Gable, the wife of Robert Gable both born about 1818. Robert was a "Tavern Keeper."
 Lydia was buried on 02/08/1888.
  Robert was buried on 12/21/1896.

Mildred peterson Florines sister  Craigs
Mildred Peterson  Florine’s sister
Looks to me like a photo from the 1910’s to 1920’s.
Mildred peterson Florines sister  Craigs
The photographer remains illusive.  The Imprint starts with a C   my best guess is Conard.
Thanks for stopping by.

We had another Peterson Family earlier from Craig’s Collection Photo Number 1520 featured Mr and Mrs Andreas Peterson and daughters Agnes and Jennie

Update from Iggy:
Perhaps this is the daughter of Erick W Peterson (abt 1875 in Finland - ?) and Mary Peterson. The family lived in Menominee, Michigan in 1920.

Erick was a Machinist for an Iron Mine.

At the time of the 1920 US Census, Mildred Peterson was 22 years old and her sisters, Marie Peterson, 20 and Florine Peterson was 10. They had a baby brother named Alfred Peterson, age 7.

This Mildred (abt 1898 in Wisconsin) was a stenographer. I don't know what happened to either her or Florine

Merry Christmas from Rev and family  DL Antiques back Number 1778


Dear Connie,

I received the copy of the photo which was our family picture (Christmas postcard) in 1941.  Although I have the picture, I didn't know it had been used as our Christmas card.  My mother, Agnes Masted, never married again and lived until she was 94, dying in 2008.

I would like to find out more.  Do you have other pictures of my dad, Rev. Walter L. Masted?


Hello Carol.   I purchased the Christmas Card in an Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.  Your father was a Pastor in the Detroit Lakes area and no doubt they had many friends in the area.   I have not run across any more photos of your family that I am aware of.  On the blog there is a search field off to the left side.

When photos end up in an antique shop you never can be sure where they come from.

I am happy to return the photo to you if you wish. It was nice to hear from you!

I wouldn't mind having it seeing it has my Dad's handwriting on it.  I will send you a check covering costs.  Please let me know about how much.  By the way, I'm the baby in the picture.  Yvonne is the older one.



Hi Connie,

I put a check in the mail for you today.  Thanks for sending the picture.  Carol

Thanks for stopping by.
