STRIKING YOUNG IMMIGRANT FAMILY DRESSED FOR WINTER : COTTAGE GROVE, OREGON

This striking vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of a young mother and father standing behind their little girl. The family is dressed for winter. The Gentleman is wearing a cap and holding an umbrella. Mom is wearing a scarf on her head and around her neck. The little girl is looking at the photographer and has an expression that says she is not sure of what is going on and she is not at all happy about being photographed. As stated earlier, there is something striking about this image. Perhaps it is because the family appears to be down and out. Their being a troubled family is certainly just my subjective perception. This photograph was taken by the Monroe & Armstrong studio, located in Cottage Grove, Oregon. The AZO stamp box reveals that the card dates back to sometime between 1904-1918. The postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
