Photo Album Discovered

Hi there and warm greeting from Canada!


We have come into possession a very old photo album that we think may have belonged to a member of the Danish Royal Family and are trying to determine if this is the case.


We would be very grateful for any possible help you can provide. We've attached a few pictures to see if anything is familiar....


We would like to restore and preserve this album and even get the history of who is pictured. The album is very big, heavy, and is made out of extremely detailed carved/tooled leather.


Most sincerely,

Andrew & Amber

Goodmorning and congratulations on your first post.

That's a very nice album. A little treasure.

However, what makes you think this belonged to a royal?
Are there any names?
Any dates?

My initial impression is that the album belonged to a upper middleclass family.
The uniforms of the two soldiers are post 1848, more likely post 1864 and they depict a cavalryman and most likely an infantryman but as far as I can tell they are not officers. - The vast majority, if not all, of those whom the DRF would associate back then would have been officers.
All sons of the middleclass would also have been conscripted as privates back then.

The other prominent young man looks like he had his photo taken on the occasion of him being ordained priest.

The womens' clothes seem to be approximately from the years 1890 - 1910.
This picture from Danish National Museum shows a home-made children's costyme from 1908 with similar vertical ribbon than in that picture of two girls in the garden. Maybe that girl has a home-made dress. Text under that National Museum's picture mentions that a Danish clothing magazine published clothing patterns at the time.
