Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)
Update from Iggy:
I suspect (but am not certain) that this is Algot E. Norrbohm (3 Jun 1886 - 28 Nov 1961) married Anna E Reilien (30 Apr 1887 - 9 Oct 1965) on June 24, 1908.

He was a painter and they lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The 1930 US Census lists 10 children: Mariette E 21, Kirby R 19, Howard E 18, George W 16, Doris J 15, Elizabeth A 11, Audrey J 9, Robert W 7, James R 4, Joseph W 3 (in 1930).

They lived at 2829 41st Avenue South which is only a block from Lake Street.

The Hasty Tasty was a cafe located on Lake Street

  1. Funny how similar old photos are to my own family's. I have a similar photo of my grandparents on their 50th. I remember murals like this too.

  3. Insofar as the "Sis" reference, Anna had 9 brothers and sisters (mostly sisters) and her family moved from her birth state of Wisconsin to Beltrami, Minnesota some time before 1900. Nine members of Anna's family, according to FindAGrave (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=95838662) were caught and perished in a forest fire in 1910. It appears only two sisters survived, Ellen and Josephine.

    1. ..and brother William, who I suspect "owned" this photo, as he lived in Baudette, Lake of The Woods, Minnesota.
