Helmer and Signe Vermerold Vennevold
This is a Real Photo Postcard that was used from 1904 to 1918. The eyelet dress is lovely and the hair ornament must be one of a kind.   The little boy sports a sailor suit with knickers.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.

Update from Lars:
Helmer Vennevold (1907-2002)
Signe Vennevold (1902-1952

It seems at least Helmer had children.

Their father's name was Lars Vennevoldhjell (probably simplified to Vennevold), which is a farm name from Sunndal in Møre and Romsdal county, Norway, a few hours drive south of Trondheim. This link confirms that Lars came from Sunndal.

Update from Iggy:
Helmer Orlando Vennevold (1 Jun 1907 in Barrett, Minnesota - 20 Apr 2002) married Alpha Hilderth Merkegard (1 Mar 1913 - 2 Feb 2008) on 3 Feb 1931. Alpha was the daughter of Andrew and Hannah (Larson) Markegard. they had two children, Betty and Richard.

His older sister, Signe Mary Vennevold (Jun. 27, 1902 - Nov. 4, 1952)

They were the children of Lars O.  and Gurina (Gina) Vennevold

  4. Wow! It's a race to the finish between Lars and Iggy, before I even get up in the morning--much less am ready to even think straight!

  5. With all the detail on the clothes - could they have been affluent?

    And slight smiles on their faces - that's unusual.
