This is a Real Photo Postcard from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
Marion Virginia Wald 5 weeks old. This is an Azo Postcard that was used from 1904 to 1918.
This may be a possibility: In the 1920 Census I found a Virginia Wald 1 and 6/12 who was born in New York living with Marie Wald 24 married who was born in Minnesota. They were living on Wisconsin Street in Chicago (City) ILL. No occupation is listed for the Mother, they are both listed as roomers. There is a Jack Wald, 28 listed further up in the census that is from New York who is married and an Actor in Moving Pictures. The three are not listed consecutively in the census, but the child Virginia is listed as having a Father from New York and a Mother from Minnesota.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from Iggy:
Jack Wald of New York Co., New York married Mary Olsen of Pipestone Co., Minnesota on 25-Jul-1917 in Pipestone, Minnesota. Mary was born 31-Jan-1895. On 1930, Jack doesn't appear with mother (35 years old) and daughter (11 years old and who was apparently born in NY) who are still living in Chicago, Illinois.
Another Marion Wald has been found..either of these could be the baby in the photo.
