A few weeks ago a friend and I visited some antique stores, and I came across some photos , and for some reason, I felt compelled to buy them. There were a lot more, but I couldn’t afford to buy them all. I have seen and heard about people buying orphaned photos, and sometimes they are able to return to their families. So I thought I would give this a try. Then I saw that Geneabloggers had this as a Friday blogging prompt. What better time than now to start.
The name on the back of the photo is Walter Hadler. The photographer is Holdmann at 224 Grand Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I am guessing by the clothing and card style that it is the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. I could be wrong here because this is new to me, and I am going by what I have found on the Internet. So if someone out there with more experience knows what the time period is, feel free to comment. He’s a cute little boy. I wonder what happened to him?
