Orphan Photo #15 Pretty Lady From Minnesota Vintage Thingies Thursday

I have just discovered a fun group of bloggers offering Vintage Thingies Thursday at
This is my first entry.
Here are people from so many places who love their treasures.
This is a small CVS or what was considered as a calling card at this time in history.
What a pretty young lady. She has a large ruffle at her neck line, long hair tied back with a ribbon and looks like 3 tiny curls on each side of a part line. She looks to maybe be in her teens.
Sadly their is no name written on the photo.
The photographer was John H. Oleson of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

You can find our vintage photos, post cards and other items in our eBay store
