Here are some family photos from my antique photo album. The first photo is my grandmother and her parents, probably taken around 1900. My great grandparents are in the second grouping. I'm guessing these photos were taken before my grandmother was born in 1890. My 2nd great grandparents are in the last grouping. Both were born in Germany in the 1830s. I imagine these photos were taken around 1890. By that time, these folks had 9 children between the ages of 5 and 27. The photos of my great grandparents were taken at different studios in Chicago:
Hartleys Studios and V Georg & Co. On the back of the photos, both studios did some advertising. All of the photos are on thick cardboard and in very good condition.

    Nice photographs-- the format is called a cabinet card.

    It is nice when they have stayed in the family.

    Thanks for sharing.
