Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

This young man reminds me a bit of my father in his high school graduation portrait. I can tell by looking that if left to grow, this fellow’s hair would be curly. The photographer, Ostlund, was in Leondardville, KS although I found references to him also being in Clay Center. I’ll tentatively date this as 1880. Ostlund is a popular Norwegian and Swedish surname.
