Photo Number 2313

This is a photo from the antique shop in Alexandria Minnesota.
Darlene Chayer N and Then Alex ant
Darlene Chayer
The photographer was E J Colmark in Kensington Minn
According to the Minnesota Historical Society he was in business there in 1902.
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from MJM:
I found a birth record for Darlene Chayer dated August 1932, to parents Chestin A and L Cordelia. That didn't fit with the MHS record of 1902 for that photographer. However, I found Erick Colmark located in Kensington on the 1930 census and that said he was a merchant in a picture gallery.
