Lost Photo of Leo Brick of St. Cloud, Minnesota

I found this photo at the Charleston Antique Mall in Las Vegas while I was on my vacation last May. 

This young gentleman is Leo Brick from St. Cloud, Minnesota.  I estimate the photo was taken somewhere between 1900 and 1910.  It was taken by photographer Eugene S. Hill who is listed in the Directory of Minnesota Photographers. According to the writing on the back of the photo Leo is the son of Peter and a cousin to the mother of whoever possessed this photo last.

This is what I have been able to find out about Leo and his father Peter.

Source Citation:, Year: 1900; Census Place: St Cloud City Ward 4, Stearns, Minnesota; Roll  T623_792; Page: 9B; Enumeration District: 171.

Hopefully a Brick family member will want this photo.

UPDATE: I am happy to report that Mr. Leo Brick is on his way home to Canada to be united with family!
