Cabinet Card lady and a weird chair Brainerd Antiques

A lady in a dress with a bustle and a pleated hem. It is kinda weird that she is leaning on that chair that is covered with a drape.

Sather was the photographer in Minneapolis, Minn    There are several Sathers. This one is Theodore A. Sather’s photo he was in Minneapolis from 1887 to 1889.

We will look at some ladies dresses for a few days this week.

This Cabinet Card is from the Tin Ceiling in Park Rapids, Minnesota.

A young gal with a great big white bow, she is clutching something but I cannot tell what it is, flowers and a handkerchief?  Maybe.  She wears tiny earrings.

Oswald was the photographer at 1227 and 1229 Washington Ave N.  Minneapolis.

I find the Oswald Brothers Emil and Charles in business together at 1227 Washington Ave. N in the years 1887 to 1895.

The 1910 US Federal Census shows George W Smyser (b. Sep. 25, 1871 d. Sep. 4, 1944) and his wife Annie J Smyser nee Buchanan (b. Jan. 20, 1872 d. May 15, 1955) living at 402 Muench St, Harrisburg, Dauphin, Pennsylvania with their children:

Mildred married Evert Carl Hokanson (2 May 1908 in Michigan - 20 Sep 1996 in Los Angeles)
Ardella Catherine married William Albrecht Davis.

George's middle name was Walter.

From the birth dates the photo must have been taken in the summer of 1904.

Does he look about 14 or 15 to you…maybe an Eighth Grade Photo?
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
I think this is Chester Norman Howell (July 8, 1892 in Uniontown, Arkansas - Aug 20, 1964 in Okmulgee, Oklahoma

Chilocco Indian School was an agricultural school for Native Americans located in north-central Oklahoma from 1884 to 1980. It was located approximately 20 miles north of Ponca City, Oklahoma and seven miles north of Newkirk, Oklahoma, near the Kansas border. The name "Chilocco" is apparently derived from a Muscogee word meaning "big deer" or horse.

Arkansas City is about 7 miles north-northeast of the school.
