Prophetic Pictures from Menomonie, Wisconsin

Prophetic Pictures from Menomonie, Wisconsin at the WHS. "...The Visual Materials Archives of the Wisconsin Historical Society holds a most unusual photograph album that takes one back to the future — an imaginary future, that is. The album comprises 32 photographs taken in 1905 of graduates of Menomonie High School in Dunn County. It doesn't describe the students' extracurricular activities nor does it reveal their hopes, dreams and aspirations upon leaving high school. Instead, photographer Albert Hansen and 'prophet' Sarah Ana Heller, both 1905 class members themselves, portrayed imaginary futures for their classmates in words and pictures."

Your blog has a lot of interesting links to historical Wisconsin photography, and I find it really interesting. We have Osaka in common, too, so I thought I'd just leave a friendly comment to say that I found your blog and like it! :)

Menomonie is only about 70 miles NW of Black River Falls. The photos in Wisconsin Death Trip are mostly from the period 1890 - 1899, though some overlap 1905. All of Van Schaick's surviving photos can also be found at the WHS site.
