Aren’t these little boys adorable? Unfortunately there is no identifying information for them. The imprint reads” F. B. Strathmann, Mascoutah, Ill.”
As luck would have it, I did find an F B Strathman (wife Ida) in Mascoutah, St. Clair, Illinois in the 1900 census listed as a photographer born in August 1867. A look back at the 1880 census indicates he may be Frank Strathmann, son of Eliz. I find Frank B Strathmann and his wife Ida in Seneca, Nemaha, Kansas in 1910, still a photographer. He and Ida remained in Seneca, Kansas until at least 1930. Given that information, and his age, it is likely this photograph was taken between 1885 and 1910.
