Feb 1929  Valentine Greetings Lovingly Walter Hanewald

Walter must be 7 years and 4 months old and his brother Harold 4 years 4 months old.  At one time this may have been glued into a photo album or scrapbook because it has black fuzzy residue on the back.

Heighstedt of 226 & 228 Washington Ave Minneapolis Minn was the photographer. He was in business there from 1890 to 1897.

The couples clothing looks early 1890’s to me. In fact the mans suit being buttoned only at the top was very popular about 1885.

The back of the card shows a different photographer but at the same address. Oleson Gallery…it seems Mr. Andrew Heighstedt married Anna G. Oleson in 1889 and took over the Oleson Studio renaming it.

Henry Bury (1895 in Illinois - 1994) : Find A Grave Memorial# 37623870, married Ruth Williams (1894 - 1992) : Find A Grave Memorial# 37623871 sometime between 1910 and 1920. I suspect the photo is there wedding photo.

They lived in Stockland, Iroquois, Illinois. Henry was a "grain farmer."

Pakonen in Virginia Minnesota was the photographer.  W. Henry Pakonen was at 103 North Second Ave W in Virginia Minnesota from 1914 to 1923.

The Frans’ Studio in Duluth Minn was the photographer.  Turns out his name was Andrew P. Frans and he was in Duluth at 323 West Superior in 1898 and at 223 West Second during 1905.

This is most likely a wedding photograph. The man wears a tiny flower on his lapel and a pretty wild tie.  The woman must like bows as she wears one on her dress and one in her hair.

William L Smith was the photographer.
I think this is a photo from the 1920s. It looks like Esther has a short haircut with some curls on both sides of her forehead.  In the early 1920’s it was quite scandalous to cut your long  hair short, the new look was a bob that was either straight or curly.

Thanks for stopping by.
Update from MJM:
It looks like a W.L. Smith was a photographer in Duluth. On the 1940 census I found an Esther Burke (wife) age 41, George M Burke (head)age 65 and Kenneth MacDonald (father-in-law) age 68, living in Duluth.
