Charles F. Schroeder operated the Quincy Street Gallery in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This cabinet card comes from his studio. He photographed this teenage (?) girl. She is dressed in black and stands at an open gate,  holding her wide brimmed hat. Schroeder was born in Prussia in 1836. The 1870 and 1880 census lists him as a photographer and reveals that his wife’s name was Wilhelmena. A Wisconsin photographers list reports that Schroeder was an active photographer in Green Bay between 1870 and 1908. There is an inscription on the reverse of the cabinet card. I believe that is written in German. Perhaps a visitor to the cabinet card gallery will enlighten us by identifying the language and maybe even translating the inscription.   (SOLD)

  1. The inscription is in German and reads “unser Jüngstes gratulirt zum Geburtstag” (our youngest [daughter] wishes a happy birthday)

    • Thanks for the translation
