Friday Faces From the Past: Walter Hadler


Orhan photo no 1

A few weeks ago a friend and I visited some antique stores, and I came across some photos , and for some reason, I felt compelled to buy them.  There were a lot more, but I couldn’t afford to buy them all.   I have seen and heard about people buying orphaned photos, and sometimes they are able to return to their families.   So I thought I would give this a try.  Then I saw that Geneabloggers had this as a Friday blogging prompt.  What better time than now to start.

The name on the back of the photo is Walter Hadler.  The photographer is Holdmann at 224 Grand Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  I am guessing by the clothing and card style that it is the late 1800’s or early 1900’s.  I could be wrong here because this is new to me, and I am going by what I have found on the Internet.  So if someone out there with more experience knows what the time period is, feel free to comment.  He’s a cute little boy.  I wonder what happened to him?

  1. I just came across this post. I have Hadlers in my Family and I have found a Walter W. Hadler born 1893. On the 1910 census he looks to be living with aunts and grandparents. So might be the boy. Do you have any other info on him? Thanks!

    • Sorry it has taken me so long to answer you, I haven’t been doing much on my blog recently and just found your post today. To answer your question, all the infomation I had on him was in the post. I was going to follow up on it, but never had time. If you believe it is your ancestor, I am will send you the picture.
