Is it possible to locate information about a photography studio that was
active in the 1850+ time frame? I have two photographs, one male and
one female, that may be my mormorfarmor and far. They are lovely
pasteboard sepia toned photographs from Aug. Wahlstrom, Falun on the
front and a script W, Fotografi Atelier Aug. Wahlstrom, Falun,
Bergmastaregatan; the words Falun and Bergmastaregatan are enclosed in a
lovely fancy drape in the shape of a shield, with fancy scroll work
within the drape.
My mormorfar came to the US in approximately 1860 as a young man of 18
and as far as we knew had very little contact with family left behind -
therefore, he must have brought these photos with him. Thanks for your
help. I really enjoy "lurking" on this List. I've learned so much
about early Sweden.
