I'm rifling the Atlases again this week, since I know some treasures were missed the first time I paged thru, especially photos of people I didn't immediately recognize. You may not find these pictures all that interesting, but someone will. Be sure to enlarge each one (the detail's amazing, considering how tiny each pic was in the books).
I particularly love this one, of "James Foss, John Kieffer & Tom Czech". Obviously friends, they might have been illustrating the most usual clothes for men in Buckman in the 1920s--Tom was comfortable as the farmer in overalls (his 'look' for all 98 of his years). John in his dress shirt, suspenders and tie would have been the store owner, the local businessman. James was the city slicker, the man about town, maybe the rum runner? Check the jaunty angle of their stoggies ☺.
The Frank Stangl family is notable to me because of the two "kids" on the left. Recognize either one? Seated is Marie (Stangl) Pohlkamp, wife of Lambert and long time neighbor of Roman and Emily Dehler...and he's Fr. Alfred Stangl, chaplain at the St Cloud hospital, who also says the televised mass many Sunday mornings. My Sunday client loves him ☺.
(No, there was no Pinky Quess).
Here's an individual portrait of Mary Mischke, but I don't know how she fits. We know the immigrant Mischke couple was Joseph and Mary, but they were in their 60s in 1900, and this photo looks to be from about that time--1890 to 1910, so this Mary is much younger.
Wait--I bet this was August's mother, the daughter who lived with Joseph and Mary in the 1900 census, huh? One of three living children, sure. She was 20 in 1900.
