I don't know if I'm posting to the right forum, if I'm not I apologize.

I have a photo of my father taken when he was in his mid teens, the paper frame around the picture says McFarland (as in photography studio) Valley City, ND.

I can't find a listing for this studio and was wondering if anyone in the area would know where to start searching for information on whether this studio existed into current times, and just might have a record of photos taken? I know that's asking a lot but I have very little information to go on.

Unfortunately I don't have a last name, birth date (somewhere in 1926-1929), or any further information. This photo is all I really have to show where he might have come from.

My family is from the Grafton area though I know that has no bearing on this.

Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The main photo studio now is Dutton's. You could call them & see what they know.....maybe they bought out McFarland's?????

You could also try Barnes County Museum. 701-845-0966

Good Luck

Default Thank you

Thank you for your help. I'll try both. I was thinking maybe the photo was of a middle school graduation. I'll try that also.
