HANDSOME MAN IN CROOKSTON, MINNESOTA

This photograph features a very handsome man posing for his portrait at the studio of Skrin Seth in Crookston, Minnesota. My spelling of the photographer’s name is questionable since his name is partially illegible as printed on the front of the photograph. The subject of this photograph has glamorous looks and is wearing a fur coat. He is identified on the reverse of the card but once again there is a legibility problem. His name is either “Mr. E. McKenzie” or “N. E. McKenzie”. Research revealed no biographical information about the image’s subject or about the photographer.

  1. The Studio’s name must be read as “Skrivseth” – look for ancestry, please: there are lots of entries to google.

  2. Looks like this is your photographer:

  3. Does anyone see a resemblance to the actor, Robert Downey?

    • I can absolutely see the resemblance.You have great observation skills,

      • Love photographs and portraiture (specifically paintings and drawings. As a child I would produce a portrait for any relative who would sit still for me. It will not come as a surprise that I am a retired illustrator.

  4. As pointed out above, the photographer is Jacob L. SKRIVSETH.
