View Full Version : Maria Carlson and ???

The little girl is my great grandmother, Maria Carlson, born in 1871 with her mother. I don't know who the rest of the people are. The picture was taken in Vaasa, Finland. At the bottom it says, "Atelier, Wasa". I don't know what this means. If you can help, I would appreciate it.

The closest I could come is the meaning of the word, from the French, it is an artists workshop or studio. This could be in many media, photography, art, fashion etc.
