Woman with parrot - 1890's

This unusual picture of a woman with a parrot was taken before 1900 by Henry Pfaffle, a Minonk photographer for many years. The picture is one of many included in an old picture album given to us by George Halfmann, Jr. whose father and mother were born and raised in Minonk in the late 1890's. Unfortunately, none of the old photos are identified but it appears that all of the photos are of Minonk people from between 1890-1900.
