Here is a photograph I picked up this past year from a local estate. I loved all the beer advertising. The card board backing measure 14" x 11", and the image measures 7 1/2" x 9 1/2". Does anyone know weather there is a name for this size photo? I am assuming that the gentleman in the picture is Geo. H Walter. The building is decorated with bunting , flags and ribbons, as if for some sort of celebration. It is embossed on the cardboard mounting board Hoffman Studios, St Paul. The best part of the picture, is the young boy peering out window above Mr Walter. Any Ideal of the date of this photo? I picked up some more photographs from this sale including a bearded lady cabinet card and a archive of native american photographs that include tintypes, cabinet cards and photos up to the 1940's. I will post more as I get time.
