Photo Number 971

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the antique shop in Erhard Minnesota.
Postcard Cyko 1904 to 1920 Inez Viola Nelson  ML Antiques Erhard
Postcard Cyko 1904 to 1920 Inez Viola Nelson  ML Antiques Erhard back
This is Inez Viola Nelson.
The card says:
Wishing you all a Happy New Year From Mr + Mrs I. Nelson
It was sent to Mr and Mrs J.L. Shirley
Most likely this is the one and the same Julius Shirley that received two Real Photo Postcards from Ida Wee yesterday.

This Real Photo Postcard a Cyko dates from 1904 to 1920. I will guess that it is closer to the 1920’s side of things..because of the style of the dress..earlier baby dresses/gowns were very long.

I enjoyed this old photo, I love the lacy more than likely crocheted dress.  I like that her cute little toes are peeking out from under the dress.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Inez Viola Regan nee Nelson (b. 2 Mar 1917 in Rothsay, MN d. 22 May 2000 in Minneapolis, MN) was the daughter of Iver and Ida Nelson. They lived in Trondhjem, Otter Tail, Minnesota during 1930s-1940s.

  3. My maiden name is Nelson and my Grandparents lived in Otter Tail county. My Grandfather worked for the Otter Tail Electric Coop...or something like that. Those names don't sound familiar to me though!
    Cute baby!

  4. You're right: those toes are adorable, peeking out from that outfit.

    How tantalizing to think this might soon become a Full Circle story!
