  1. My dad was born in 1918 and this photo reminds me that there were never a photo taken of the family until they went to a photographer up town. Dad didn't have a baby picture ever taken.

  2. Is this a cut-and-paste of three baby pictures, or is this a photo of triplets? Cousins? What does the writer mean by "our little girls"?

    1. I think maybe a Grandma, it would be how I would address my grands. Cousins is my best guess:)

  3. Okaben? I assume this is "Lake Okabena" near Worthington, (Nobles County) MN.

    The use of MB would imply the last name started with "B" (and Alice and Gertrude are "B"s).

    1. Could be Lake Okabena, this lady was not the best speller. Yes on the "B"
