It looks to me as if it's from a family photo album and that perhaps the labeling was done as part of a scrapbook project.
There is apparently a child to the right of the third adult woman from the left, but I can't see her. And another under the quilting frame. ☺
I always love an Irish Chain quilt and I wish I knew what colors were used here. And to whom the quilt belonged or was to be given.
What a great piece of Dakota History. I'm currently reading "Pioneer Girl," the autobiography of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and part of it takes place in Dakota Territory during the same year as this photo was taken. It gives me an additional glimpse into the "look" of the time period.
Isn't it wonderful?
A Blessed Sunday to You!
