I still believe that these were Gene’s photos or someone close to him.  We don’t have a last name for Gene…but I bet his sister or his wife was named Margaret whose last name was Lundborg..but that could be her married name not her maiden name.  
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update:


 From Iggy
Margaret Elizabeth Larson nee Lundborg (b. July 4, 1915 in Allegheny, Pennsylvania d. April 30, 2010 at age of 94 in Brainerd, Crow Wing, MN) She was the daughter of Samuel (b. 1870 in Sweden d. Dec. 2 1942) and Selma Lundborg (b. 1876 in Sweden)


I found this Obituary for a Margaret Lundborg. 
Margaret Elizabeth Larson, 94, of Brainerd, died Friday, April 30, 2010, at Harmony House.

Services for Margaret will be 11 a.m., Friday, May 7, at Lutheran Church of the Cross in Nisswa. Interment will be at Evergreen Cemetery in Brainerd.

Margaret was born July 4, 1915, in Pittsburgh, Pa. Early in her life, Margaret moved with her family to the Brainerd lakes area. She was united in marriage to Harry Larson. Harry died in 1962. Margaret owned and operated Lundberg Jewelry in Brainerd for many years. She was a member of Lutheran Church of the Cross, Zonta, Eastern Star, and a 50-year member of the American Legion Auxiliary. She enjoyed the outdoors.

Margaret will be missed by her cousin, Ruth Maples, of Brainerd; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Harry and her parents.





Update from Jacqi:
Here is a link that goes with this Margaret.

  1. There's old Gene (Red) again. I would love to learn his story.

  2. Hi Maybelline, There is only one photo of "Red" and many of Gene. The photos are marked in the same hand with the same pen..so I am thinking they are two different guys. We will follow Gene for a few days yet:)

  3. Margaret Elizabeth Larson nee Lundborg (b. July 4, 1915 in Allegheny, Pennsylvania d. April 30, 2010 at age of 94 in Brainerd, Crow Wing, MN) She was the daughter of Samuel (b. 1870 in Sweden d. Dec. 2 1942) and Selma Lundborg (b. 1876 in Sweden)

    I would assume Gene is short for Eugene - but I can't find a likely Gene Lundborg or Larson.

  4. I'm presuming that Margaret may be the one behind the camera. With Iggy's find, I was hoping to discover some information showing Margaret served in the military, but no luck there. At least, a local link showed that Margaret was known for taking lots of photographs! See http://www.cullenlakes.org/history.html

  5. Thanks Jacqui..yes I have read that account of the Lundborg/Larsons. So far it doesn't make sense to me.
    I do believe that she died in the Brainerd Area..because that is where I found the photos at an antique shop. I wish I could find more out about her husband. :)
