The Girl with a Bow   – New Ulm, Minnesota (circa 1910)

New Ulm is a wonderful city at the juncture of the Minnesota River and the Cottonwood River in south-central Minnesota.

Founded by German immigrants following the 1848 Revolution in Germany, the city retains many features of German culture.

Early settlers founded gymnasia and music halls, and developed the beer-brewing industry in Minnesota.

Sometime around 1910, a pretty girl had her photographic portrait made at the Castler Studio in New Ulm.

Unfortunately, no thoughtful person inscribed the name of the girl.

One hopes that she was happy and successful in the early years of the twentieth century.
