This vintage photograph features two well dressed young girls posing for their portrait at the Star studio in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is a good bet, that the children are sisters. They certainly share a family resemblance. The older girl seems confident and is displaying a half smile. The younger girl does not seem too pleased to find herself the subject of the photographer’s lens and is holding big sister’s hand for support. Both girls are wearing bows in their hair as well as necklaces. According to the Wisconsin Photographers Index the Star Photo Company operated in Milwaukee between 1898 and 1918. William Cobourn and Joseph L Mutzbauer were two photographers associated with the studio.
