John Sigvaldson
(Dec 1860 - 9Jun 1936)

J. Sigvaldson immigrated to the US in 1891 at age 31. He worked as a laborer and an elevator operator until about 1897. After marrying in 1897 he took up photography until about 1900, possibly as late as 1904. In 1905 he was a day laborer again and then took up farming for the rest of his life. He died in 1936.

This cabinet card must have been finished between about 1897 and 1904.
