Mexican Family in Saint Paul Minnisota

scan0015<

To my eyes this appears to be two Mexican families posing for this photo ,possibly two siblings and their spouses??The woman have similar features.One friend who is from Mexico viewed this photo and said that maybe they could be “Indio’s” as he put it in Spanish meaning Indigenous persons from South America.Most likely they are Mexicans of Indian decent.
Very interesting family Portrait

There is what looks like a tear in the lower left of the photo but that blemish is part of the print.I think the original glass negative was broke and then the print was made.

Family with a Horse and Buggy

A nice shot of a couple with a Horse and Buggy.Again very nice detail for the small Carte de Visite.A man holds the Horse by its halter while a woman sits in the buggy holding what looks like a baby a forth figure is seen standing behind the buggy on the front porch of the house.
