Comments

This was probably taken by my Uncle Adolph Feiler who I believe was a military photographer. Adolph owned his own photography studio as well.  His parents farmed on the Heart River. Both were immigrants and married in Stark Co in 1910. John and Mary Feiler had 12 children,

I'm researching a photographer named Adolph Feiler who had a studio in Des Moines, Iowa and moved to Polk City Iowa @ 1950. Do you think it could be your uncle? I can't find any record of him in Des Moines before the 1944 Drake Relays where he had some photos published in the Newspaper. He did some wonderful photos for the Polk City Kiwanis Club and I would love to have some info of him to display with the photos.
