I know Johnsons are hard to find but I couldn’t resist the photo.  The hat and glasses along with the coat and umbrella make quite a photo. I will guess that the photo was taken in 1910 1917 and this young lady is about 12 years old.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)
Update from Iggy:
Aug. 30, 1905 - Dec. 3, 1996, the wife of Norris Orvin Bergeson (1898 - 1973) and daughter of Conrad and Lizzie.

  1. Evansville is close to Fergus Falls (30 miles). The dating doesn't "align" as closely as I'd like, but I think this might be the Thora of the photograph.
