1890's Al Lofgren Family Cabinet Card Photo by Hare Photo Co.
#203 Lofgren Genealogy:
On reverse: "Al. Lofgren" is beautifully handwritten in old period fountain pen. Photo type: Original Vintage Victorian Cabinet Card Photograph. Photographer: Hare Photo Co., Photographer: Address Unknown. Note: We believe this to be the photography studio of T.H. Hare, or Thomas Horton Hare 1839-1916 who worked in Hamilton, Caldwell County, Missouri.
This is a stunning photo of 6 blond children, 3 boys and 3 girls, most likely of Swedish or Scandinavian descent. It is assumed the period after the name Al is an abbreviation, as in for Albert, Alexander, Alex, Alec, Alfred, Alonzo, Albion, or Alvin. Do you know this amazing family? They range in age from about 5 to 13 years. There were other photos from the midwest found with this photo, all different surnames, places and ages. It was found in Brimfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. A beautiful old Lofgren family and rare piece.
Size: 4.5 by 7 inches
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
