Photo Number 972

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the antique shop in Erhard Minnesota.

Postcard 1914 to 1917  Little Ernie ML Erhard

Postcard 1914 to 1917  Little Ernie ML Erhard back

It might say:

This is cousin Ronningen in north D??  Ernie Ronningen

This type of postcard was used from 1914 to 1917.

I asked my Dad why some kids wore such large belts.  He said so they could be strapped in a chair.  If anyone else knows anything about these large belts please leave a comment.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

  1. He looks like he is enjoying his drink with a straw.

    I wonder if he is related to the Ronningen in photo 962 (Anton Amundsen's brother-in-law) Edwin Ronningen.

  3. I'd never heard that bout the belts, but it's not a bad idea.
