Photo Number 1095

This is a snapshot from the antique shop in Duluth Minnesota.
Frances Risdon and her skates Duluth
Frances Risdon and her skates Duluth back
Frances Risdon is my best guess.  Her hat looks 1920’s to 1930’s to me.  I imagine the hat, coat and skirt to be red..how about you?  She looks like a teenager to me.
This could have been a photo taken in Duluth..the house in the background is built up high on the lot like many of the houses in Duluth.  Of course it could be many other cities in the snowy areas of this country.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from The Colonel:
Frances Elizabeth Risdon - born on October 25, 1906 in Saint Louis County [of which Duluth is the county seat]
Update From Iggy:
Frances Elizabeth Risdon (b. October 25, 1906) lived on 405 Vermillion Drive - and was a writer. Her parents were Ernest A. Risdon, a traffic manager(?) and Lida A nee Shultz. They are buried in Bee Ridge Cemetery, Edina, Knox County, Missouri. They moved to Missouri between 1930 and 1940 - with or without Frances (she doesn't appear in the 1940 US Census with them and presumably is married by then).

  1. What a "happy" skating-related snap! It looks to me like it was taken in the early-1920s. -- The Colonel's Charlotta

  2. Yes, the subject's name does appear to be Frances Risdon, and she appears to be quite young - as was suggested, maybe a teenager. Her skating costume looks like it might be made of a heavy woolen fabric. Looks are often deceiving but she appears warm and quite happy to be out and about in the snow. I'm happy, too, but mostly about not having to shovel any of that snow. I'd rather be sledding lickety-split down the hill behind Frances!
