Strong-jawed couple from La Crosse

What it is:

Photo (4 x 6 inches) inserted into a folding cardboard frame/folder.

What I know about it:

Photographer is Olin of La Crosse.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


This is another one of the ones my mother gave me.  I like the way these two seem so nicely matched.  I found at least one other image online by this photographer, but no firm conclusion as to which La Crosse this is.  I am operating under the assumption that this is La Crosse, Wisconsin, but I also found smaller towns called La Crosse in Virginia, Washington (population 350), and Kansas (“Barbed Wire Capital of the World”).

  1. Strong jawed and also crisp and clean. After some consideration, I think they are an attractive couple.

    • They grow on you, don’t they?

      • Matt, I was a self employed owner of a custom black and white lab for many years. My specialty was copying old photos and I made them all by hand, one at a time. Perhaps a million photos over 15 years. I loved each one, and did magnificent work. You might guess that I saw some amazing, historical, and personal photos.

      • Mike, that sounds fantastic! What a wonderful experience. I’m sure your work reflected the love and care you felt for those images.

  2. This couple seemed so solid and stable to me. I think she is very pretty.

    • I agree. I hope I didn’t give the impression that I thought they were unattractive. Unconventionally attractive, perhaps, but still quite lovely.
