Photo Number 783

This is a postcard from the first Antique shop in Dorset.
Azo T Up Postcard May 07 1916 Confirmated Dorset1
Cason Kent took this photo.  He was in Parkers Prairie during the 1910’s. This type of Azo Postcard with the triangles pointing up in the corners of the stamp box were used form 1904 to 1918.

I believe it says Luranne Tauglan ( Tanglen..Tanglon??)
Confirmated
May 7, 1916
Love that old word Confirmated.  I recall some of my Grandparents friends saying Confirmated instead of Confirmation.  I wonder if all these young men were confirmated the same day?

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

In the 1905 Minnesota Census, residing in Parkers Prairie, I find Peter Taugelen, age 28, with Lavern, age 4, and Lavon, age 9/12. The surname could be Taugelin, Tangelin or Tangelen.

    1. I believe those shoes/boots are Walk Overs. Walk Overs were the first brand name in shoes. George Keith started the Company in 1758. Their motto was " Made to a standard not to a price." They are still in business:)

  4. Imagine that...still in business???? Where? What's the name? Yes, the shoes are very interesting. In fact, some of the women's shoes today are looking more like my Aunt's lace up block heel shoes she had to wear because she had polio when she was young. They were considered orthopedic back then...if she could see the young girls wearing them now! What a hoot!
    Anyway, I'm getting better at this old photo thing. When I first looked at the photo I thought they did not look like brothers! I was so proud of myself when you later said they were a "confirmated" class! LOL! I've never heard that before but assumed it was confirmation. This site is improving my power of observation or something along those lines.

  5. That last name is nearly inscrutible. I wonder who and where Luranne was?
