Update from MJM:
This is a long shot, but the only name I could find that was close. There is a woman named Edith L Blackmer (1880-1910) whose mother was named Vesta. Vesta Graves (1840-1921) married George Washington Blackmer (1833-1907). The couple had 10 children, including Edith, all born in Illinois. The only connection I've found to MN was one son lived in Pequot Lakes, MN in 1930.

Hanson group DL ant

Meet the Hanson Family.

Hanson group DL ant back

There were many names and birthdates on the back.  I did a little research…and linked a few names with the parents at Find A Grave.  I was unsure that it was just one family but at Family Search I found the information that corresponded to what is on the back of the photos.

The photographer was J.A Fuller in Albert Lea Minn He was in Albert Lea from 1873 onward.

Here is the info on the back.

Hans Hanson 10 June 1827            Kari Olsen  29 Dec  1829

Peter Hanson 21 Aug 1858           Mari Hanson 18 Dec 1852
Adolph William 4 Feb 1860         Berthe Louise 23 Nov 1864
Hans Tomes 16 Sep 1865             Karoline Maria 22 Sept 1867
Albert Hanson  14 April 1874      Ingeborg  25 Sep 1869
Martin Fredrick 3 July 1876            Randine Soffie 16 Dec 1871

Ok Now here is the info I found.   I will guess that this photo was taken prior to part of the family moving to Northern Minnesota., I think that the photo was taken about 1879 - 1880.
