This is a Real Photo Postcard from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

A small child holding what looks like a flower in one hand and petals of the flower in the other.  It looks like that is a bottle of talcum powder in the chair.  Cute curls!

This is an Azo Real Photo Postcard that was used from 1904 to 1918.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)
Update from Joe Lowry:
Ramona Moffett was born about 1916 in Minnesota. In 1930, she was living in Glenwood, Pope, Minnesota with her parents Walter (age 61, born in Wisconsin) and Jessie (age 45, Iowa born). Her younger brother Walter was 9 (also born in Iowa).

Update from Iggy:
South Dakota Marriages, 1905-1949 about Robin H Thompson
Name: Robin H Thompson
Age: 27
Gender: Male
Spouse: Ramona A Moffett
Age: 22 (b. c. 1915)
Marriage Date: 4 Sep 1937
Marriage County: Roberts
County of Residence: Pope
Post Office: Glenwood Minn

From that - I uncovered a 1930 US Census records showing her to be the daughter of Walter W. and Jessie B. Moffett. Where the young couple went, I do not know.

  1. Reminded me of the line "there was a little girl who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead." Can't remember where the line was from though....

  2. I suspect that the talcum can was a pet possession and caused tantrums if moved very far away from her. I too, was reminded of the Longfellow poem.
