The date on this image appears to be Oct. 4, 1896. Just about everything else is a mystery. Who is the baby? Who is the adult? Where are they? What does the note “5 win + 6 days” mean?
The back of the photo offers an additional clue. A Duluth photographer has stamped the back.
The name isn’t easy to read … something like Fred L Farruer. Whatever structure at 409 Ninth Ave. E. the photographer was working out of is long gone. The land it occupied is now the location of Portland Manor, a five-story apartment complex built in 1973.
