  1. The only Olson I know is Jimmy Olson who worked with reporters named Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

  2. Little Mildred doesn't look very amused. That's a fancy-backed chair she's sitting on.

  4. The wallpaper is so beautiful; I wish it was on my walls. I'd like that fancy rocker for my very own, too!

  5. We are searching for our father's birth mother - Mildred J Olson. She had my father in 1925 when she was 18. He was born in Sioux Falls SD but we believe his father, Walter Briese (also 18 in 1925) was from Minnesota. Could this be her??

    1. It could be Jan, I dated this postcard between 1904 and 1918. If it is from 1907 then it is a possibility. I will see if we can do more research :)

    2. Hi Jan, Iggy did a bunch of research. There are several possibilities.
      Theree are 2-3 and maybe 4 possibilities that I can find for the Mildred in the photo

      The daughter of Olaf living in Thorpe, MN seems most likely to me. I couldn't find any Mildred J born in 1906-08.

      Less likely is:

      If I understand you correctly, your reader suspected a Mildred J Olson and a Walter Briese had a child in Sioux City? I researched a bit but didn't see anything that along those lines.

    3. Thanks for your tips - I will research them. Mildred J Olson gave birth to our father on May 18, 1925, in Sioux Falls SD - Walter Briese was our father's father. Mildred gave birth in a place called "Keena Hospital" or "Keena Maternity Home." We are trying to find any records they have to get some other identifying piece of information for Mildred.
