PORTRAIT OF A LOVELY YOUNG WOMAN IN MT. LAKE, MINNESOTA

This cabinet card portrait features a lovely sweet young woman with beautiful dark eyes. She is wearing what I consider to be an unusual dress. Note the black pennant shaped pieces of fabric attached to her dress. The photographer of this image is Jacob D. Schroeder of Mt. Lake, Minnesota. Schroeder was born in Russia in 1858 and arrived in Minnesota in 1873. He was a photographer for ten years and then became a manager of a telephone company in Mountain Lake. In 1903, he became a representative in the legislature. Other government experience included holding office as Justice of the Peace, School Board Secretary, and Postmaster. SOLD
