Photos from Wausau, Wisconsin

Wow, only 6 weeks this time!  ;) 


Here are several pictures I bought in a large lot from Ebay about 2 1/2 years ago.  Back in February 2010 I started posting a few and gave the history of the photos thus:
"I recently bought a box of photos from an Ebay seller who told me that they were reproduced at the Toburen photo studio at Wausau, Wisconsin mostly during the 1960s to 1980s."Families in the 60s to 80s took their old family photos to the studio to be reproduced, and then never came back to pick them up!  I can't imagine that the studio didn't call to remind them, so I don't know why so many were never claimed.  There are some great images, I'm thinking particularly of one of an older couple from possibly the 1800s where the wife is smoking a pipe.  This wasn't a snapshot, but a posed photo from a studio, so the pipe must have been an object very near and dear to her!  Anyway, I will start posting some of the large family photos from this lot.  None of them have names, but some have order numbers. "



As usual please click on the photos to see them larger.


Looks like a mother and 6 daughters:

Great picture of a mostly smiling family:



And this is a beauty of a formal picture of a Slavic- or Norse-looking family:
