Two men pose for their portrait at the Flaten Studio in Fargo, North Dakota. The men are well dressed and may be wearing identical outfits because they are in work clothing. They are looking quite handsome in their striped pants, vests, ties, and hats. Perhaps a visitor to the site may have a hypotheses concerning the reason the men are dressed alike. The date of this photograph is sometime after 1889, as before that time, the address of the studio would have been listed as “Dakota Territory”. To see other photographs by Flaten, click on Cabinet Card Gallery’s category, “Photographer: Flaten”. There is no concrete evidence that the Flaten in Fargo is the same gentleman as O. E. Flaten (the photographer of the other images in the “Photographer: Flaten” category), but it is certainly a reasonable possibility.
