Family Photos (mostly) from the 1880s

Family Photos (mostly) from the 1880s
This entry is part 7 of 20 in the series Cabinet Cards

These pictures were inserted into archival plastic sleeves with no apparent order!

There is a very pretty young girl, and on the back it’s dated “Christmas 1885”. Another, from 1889 by Hagendorff of Milwaukee Wisconsin… is this one of the same girl? I like the one of the older woman with glasses in a black lace high necked Victorian looking dress. Older people have more character, but young folks of this era look so innocent!

I like the white frame details around the boy in the white shirt. It was not dated.

The photo of the young boy and girl in black is dated 1882 and was taken by Schroeder’s Studio, 359 Third St., Milwaukee Wisconsin.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
