Here is another Postcard same gals…a few years older.

Postcard Azo Triangles up Ada Wee your niece  ML Antiques Erhard back
This time it is an Azo Real Photo Postcard from 1904 to 1918.
It reads: A Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year wishes from your niece Ada Ida Wee

It is addressed to Mr and Mrs Julius Shirley.

The girls look so sad.  Do you suppose those black bits of fabric on the front of their blouses is some type of mourning cloth??

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from Iggy:

I am pretty sure that this is Ida Jorgine Wee, born 29 Dec 1889 in Lake Hanska, Brown, Minnesota to Anders and Sigrid Wee.

The 1900 US census lists Ida (age 11) and her two sisters, Anna S Wee (9) and Nelley M Wee (7).

If so, this would make Ida the one wearing the glasses.

Ida married Hans L Ahlness 

Julius L Shirley (b. 1856 in Norway d. 1925) and Anne Shirley (b. Jun. 2, 1861 in Norway d. Aug. 26, 1950) lived in Otter Tail, Minnesota according to the 1920 US Census.


Anne Shirley's Find A Grave memorial shows her maiden name was Wee.

    The Find A Grave memorials for Anne's husband Julius and daughter Mildred Shirley (1890 - 1908) show them as passing away at the time of the postcards.
