Photo Number 1964

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the Antique Mall in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.  It is one of those generic postcards where a date would just be a guess. I bumped up the contrast on this photo so the names would be visible.
Swanson girls
Glenna Swanson, Viola Swanson, Jess Swanson
I wonder if these girls are relatives of the other Swansons/Swensons that I have featured this week?
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Iggy:
These are the three daughters of Marshall William Swanson and Carrie Jane Swanson nee Pryor.

Glenna B Johnson nee Swanson (Dec. 4, 1899 - Mar. 1, 1988 in Ham Lake, Anoka County, Minnesota) 
She was the wife of William A Johnson and they had at least two sons, Wallace Ray (13 Nov 1923- 14 Jul 2000), and Robert Vernon (5 Jun 1924 - 4 Aug 2002).

Viola Gertrude Swanson (4 Mar 1905 - 1993)
She was the wife of Hollis Peter Van Alstine.

Jessie Isabelle Olson nee Swanson (30 Jun 1909 - 16 Oct 1985)
I think she was the wife of Elmer W. Olson. They had a son named Jack Willard (2 Dec 1928 - ?).
