This was a photo I featured on August 30, 2010. It is Photo Number 298.
Iggy had lots of names to work with.
He located a nephew of one of the ladies.
Update From Iggy:
He found that Miss Grace Barney was a teacher at The University of Wisconsin Superior, she lived within blocks of the school. He also found out that many of these ladies in this photo were living in Douglas County and born 1917-1920. Were they all going to be teachers? Possibly.
I have contacted The U of Wisconsin Superior..their alumni association to see if they can confirm that it is a group of gals from their school..and if so I will return the photo to them. We will see what happens :)
Update from Iggy January 05, 2011

The photo was mailed January 06 2011.
Iggy received this email on October 08, 2011
My aunt was delighted with the picture, though she was unable to offer any insight into its provenance, speech having only recently forsaken her.
Thank you kindly for going to the trouble of mailing it to me.
Not the reply we had hoped for.
I also mailed a copy of this photo to Thomas Bergh who is the Director of Alumni Relations at the University of Wisconsin Superior. He was able to verify that Miss Barney was an instructor there. He was very happy to get a copy of the photo.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
