Photo Number 759

This is a photo from Buggy Wheel Antiques.
Hulda Brennin and sister Buggy Wheel Antiques
The photographer was M L Moldrem of Elbow Lake Minnesota.  He was in business 1914 to 1918, 1922 and 1926.  I think this is most likely from the 1914 to 1918 time frame.

  1. They had another sister.

  2. My grandma had a sister named Hulda.
    It is a name you don't hear anymore!

  3. What lovely ladies. I wonder if they used rags to roll those tight curls??

  4. I sent a message to someone who had Hulda in a private family tree. Hulda had two sons. Jack died at age 58 and was single. Kenneth died in 1999 and I couldn't find any additional family info on him. I didn't look into Anna's family as I am short on time today. ~Abra
