PORTRAIT OF A FATHER AND SON IN DULUTH, MINNESOTA (SOMEONE SHOULD CALL THE FASHION POLICE)

A father and son pose for their portrait at the Tornquist gallery in Duluth, Minnesota. At least it is my hypotheses that they are father and son based on their similar facial features. It appears that the men are wearing work clothes. Hopefully the son learned a lot about life from his father. However, I hope the son did not inherit his father’s fashion sense. Dad’s striped pants and plaid shirt clash big-time. Someone should call the fashion police. Dad’s poor fashion judgement should result in a felony. The photographer of this cabinet card portrait is Axel M. Turnquist. Mr Turnquist got around. He was born in Sweden and trained as a photographer in Duluth. He  operated photographic studios in many Minnesota towns including, Eveleth, Hibbing, Aurora, Tower, Virginia, and Duluth. His photography career spanned from the 1880’s through 1923. This cabinet card is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. Such a great image! Of course, fashion standards are different now than then, and I believe a bold plaid print suit was just the fashion for men. This combo of plaid and stripes doesn’t surprise me, although I wouldn’t choose it for myself or really anyone else. 🙂
