Some of the mutts at home.  The boys are strangers to me.

Will make some blue prints of alf and send when I get time.  

Mable is the name on the address side of the postcard.

This is a NOKO postcard, they were used from 1907 to 1920.  I will guess this photo was taken 1910-1914.

Iola + Averl Robbins

Cousin Isabelle’s Barley two girls

Earlier we had a photo of Ilo Robbins Photo Number 416

That photo was mailed to Donna.  Full Circle 26

When I came across this photo I tried to contact her with no luck, then I tried to contact George with no luck.  Sue finally got in touch with Darrin at Ancestry.  Hopefully he will see this photo and we will hear from him. (Donna was a Granddaughter, George a Grandson and Darrin a cousin.)

This is what we know.

Iola Robbins is the daughter of Isabelle Barley and Judson Robbins. Judson and Isabelle were married Nov 10th, 1897.
.
Claude Lester Evans married Ilo Vivian Robbins on 27 Dec 1919 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Ilo was born on 23 Aug 1899 in Hutchinson, McLeod, Minnesota. She died on 26 Jun 2005. Claude died on 13 Mar 1978. They had four children in Saskatchewan, Canada, all of which are now deceased.

I hope this photo finds a home.  Perhaps Averl Robbins relatives will show up!

Thanks for stopping by.

This is a photo from the antique shop in Floodwood Minnesota.

Aunt Mary Floodwood ant

The photographer is Golling-Hesse in Mpls which is short for Minneapolis.  They were in business there from 1906 to 1932. 

The pigeon breasted look to her blouse and the hair suggest a photo taken 1906-1910.

This is marked Aunt May or if you look at it long enough it morphs into Aunt Mary.

She also sports a pair of Pince-nez rimless glasses.

Thanks for stopping by.

Olson was the photographer in Frazee Minnesota. 

HM Olson was a photographer in Frazee in 1902, perhaps he was there into the 1920’s and 1930’s as that is when I think this photo was taken.

Thanks for stopping by.

My maternal grandparents were from the Frazee area, this may well be someone they knew.
