This is a photograph from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
FW Gertson of Lidgerwood ND was the photographer.
These ladies look like they are ready to travel.
I think it says : To Mrs Hillestad or Hillestod
I wonder if perhaps she was a favorite teacher..or maybe a cousin who got married and they are using her formal name.
I think the photograph was taken sometime right around 1900..give or take a few years.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
