Photo of Miss Minnie Klause circa 1899



Here is another lost family photo that I found at the The Charleston Antique Mall.

This is Miss Minnie Klause according to what is written on the back side of this photo.  If this little girl is ten years old or younger, them I may have found the right Minnie.

The photographer was Alfred Bennefeld from St. Louis, Missouri. According to a list of Early St. Louis Photographers his shop was located at the corner of Dorcas St & Carondelet Av. starting in 1880. It doesn't say how long he was there, but according to the Missouri State Archives he died 21 May 1900 in Jackson County. So I estimate the photo to be taken around 1899/1900.
