Photo Number 1599

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Mr and Mrs Oclair Strand

It is a Vitava postcard that was used from  1925 to 1934.
We had another Strand couple the other day.  Photo Number 1594 (Elfred or Alfred) Alhert and Clara Strand, perhaps they are related.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.
Update from Iggy:
Oclair Epharim Strand (11 Dec 1896 - 2 Aug 1973) is buried in the First Lutheran Cemetery, Blooming Prairie, Dodge County, Minnesota.
He married Clara Braaten (abt 1903 - 1987?) sometime after 1930 but before 1940.

  1. Such an unusual name makes him easier to find. Oclair Epharim Strand (11 Dec 1896 - 2 Aug 1973) is buried in the First Lutheran Cemetery, Blooming Prairie, Dodge County, Minnesota. He is Find A Grave Memorial# 124991011.

    He married Clara Braaten (abt 1903 - 1987?) sometime after 1930 but before 1940. Find A Grave Memorial# 124991016.

    In the same cemetary there are Alfred and Clara Strand with gravestones that are identical in style that I assume are a "couple", and perhaps the people in photo 1594.

    Alfred C. Strand (1892 - 1954) : Find A Grave Memorial# 124991007
    Clara Strand (1904 - 1978) : Find A Grave Memorial# 124991017

    Alfred C. Strand was Oclair's older brother.
