Miller was the photographer. He was at the Minneapolis address from 1884 to 1889. The lady wears a bustle so I will guess that the photo was taken sometime 1884 to 1886.

It is addressed to Carrie Swanson Anoka Minn  Box 2657  USA
Carrie Swanson was married to Marshall Swanson and her maiden name was Pryor.  So she is most likely related to this fellow.
I have a few Pryor Photos…and there are a few left at the antique shop from both families (the Pryors and the Swanson/Swensons) I only bought a sampling.
This was a AZO postcard that was used from 1904 to 1918.
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
Theodore Eugene (Gene) Pryor
Birth Jun 09, 1867 in Washington Co. Ohio 
Death Aug 31, 1935 in Isanti MN 

He was one of Carrie's older brothers. The 1900 US census shows him as a house painter.

I wonder how he is related to John and Gertrude, or John, Martha and Marshall Swenson/Swanson?
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
This photo looks like the previous photo in tone - and Ellsworth was the sole son and oldest child of Marshall and Carrie Swanson.

Ellsworth Hamilton Swanson (7 Oct 1896 in Anoka County, Minnesota - 18 Jan 1961) 

The 1940 US Census shows him as a dry cleaner with his family:

Wife - Anna Swanson 42
Children:   Louise F Swanson 20, Marshall Swanson 17, Robert Emil Swanson 2

Louise Francis (4 Oct 1919 - 18 Apr 2004) she married a Pruitt.

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the Antique Mall in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.  It is one of those generic postcards where a date would just be a guess. I bumped up the contrast on this photo so the names would be visible.
Swanson girls
Glenna Swanson, Viola Swanson, Jess Swanson
I wonder if these girls are relatives of the other Swansons/Swensons that I have featured this week?
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Iggy:
These are the three daughters of Marshall William Swanson and Carrie Jane Swanson nee Pryor.

Glenna B Johnson nee Swanson (Dec. 4, 1899 - Mar. 1, 1988 in Ham Lake, Anoka County, Minnesota) 
She was the wife of William A Johnson and they had at least two sons, Wallace Ray (13 Nov 1923- 14 Jul 2000), and Robert Vernon (5 Jun 1924 - 4 Aug 2002).

Viola Gertrude Swanson (4 Mar 1905 - 1993)
She was the wife of Hollis Peter Van Alstine.

Jessie Isabelle Olson nee Swanson (30 Jun 1909 - 16 Oct 1985)
I think she was the wife of Elmer W. Olson. They had a son named Jack Willard (2 Dec 1928 - ?).

Alie Austin Dl ant

We rarely see a dress with a patterned fabric, it looks like the outline of light colored flowers.  This dress also has a leather belt. The dress is gathered right at the bust line and looks to have somewhat dropped sleeves.  She has a pocketbook in her right hand.  Her long hair appears to be caught up in a pony tail and swept over to her shoulder.

Alie Austin Dl ant back  

Alie Austen or Austin

This photo looks western to me…Montana maybe…just a hunch.  I have rarely seen a photo like this one.   She looks to be maybe 18 years old?  What do you think?  The photo was probably taken in the 1880’s to 1890’s.  I bet she ordered that material for the dress.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stadin was the photographer in Cambridge Minn.  He sold his Studio to a Nels Carlson who continued on with the name Stadin into the 1930’s.  That is most likely when this photo was taken.

Could this be Chas. Weeks and his wife?

This is most likely Chas. Weeks and his wife( I say that because her hand is touching his arm.)  I will guess the photo was taken 1900-1910.  The photo is not marked, but I believe it is Chas.  If it isn’t him then it could be his brother.

Does she look like she is pushing him down in that chair?  He wears a black bow on his suit.  Originally I thought this might be a wedding photo but the more I thought about it…I think it is just a photo. I will guess it was taken about 1890.

Photo Number 1950

This is a photo from the antique shop in Wahpeton North Dakota.
Helmer and Laura Wahpeton Antiques
Helmer & Laura Johnson    Father’s Cousin – Lamoure
Haynes Selby Ave Cor. Virginia in St Paul is the photographer. The Haynes photographer might be Jack Ellis Haynes  who was at that address in the 1880’s…or Frank Jay Haynes who was at the address from 1895 to 1908.

The photo measures 5 x7.  It is larger than a Cabinet Card, and from the ladies blouse and skirt I think it is from the 1895 to 1908 timeframe.  Too bad she dropped her handkerchief on the floor.

Lamoure could be in North Dakota.
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
Helmer Johnson (1861 - 1931) and Laura Johnson nee' Hendrickson (1859 - 1942) are buried in High Prairie Cemetery, LaMoure, LaMoure County, North Dakota.

Helmer immigrated from Norway in 1885 to the USA as did Laura (they were married in c. 1881).

The 1900 US census shows 2 sons, Claus (Oct 1880 in Norway)  and Henry (Sep 1893 in ND)

They also had 5 daughters, (ages as of 1900), Petria Johnson, 17; Julia Johnson, 12; Helga Johnson 10; Lena Johnson 8.
