Ellsworth Swanson Age 12
310 Garfield Street
I wonder how he is related to John and Gertrude, or John, Martha and Marshall Swenson/Swanson?
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
This photo looks like the previous photo in tone - and Ellsworth was the sole son and oldest child of Marshall and Carrie Swanson.

Ellsworth Hamilton Swanson (7 Oct 1896 in Anoka County, Minnesota - 18 Jan 1961) 

The 1940 US Census shows him as a dry cleaner with his family:

Wife - Anna Swanson 42
Children:   Louise F Swanson 20, Marshall Swanson 17, Robert Emil Swanson 2

Louise Francis (4 Oct 1919 - 18 Apr 2004) she married a Pruitt.

  3. What a great photo! I can see a Norman Rockwell treatment on that one! Glad to see this one is a candidate for a fast-tracked Full Circle. Here's hoping!
