I purchased a large album of old photos from the antique shop at Kabekona Corner near Laporte MN. We are regulars at that shop, the owner Dave saved this album for me.
This is a postcard of nine men. It is an Azo Postcard with triangles pointing up in the stamp box, they were used from 1904 to 1918
Kjos, Clarence Quam, Kjos, Gilbert Grove, Louis Grove, ____, Bert Ness, Jens Quam, Henry Quam.
I wonder if they are all salesmen? Or classmates? The postcard seems to have been sent to someone in Kenyon Minn but the name has been erased. Kenyon is in Goodhue County. The photographer was Austinson’s of Owatonna & Kenyon.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again.
Update from Iggy:
Louis Andreas Grove (Dec. 27, 1888 - Jan. 16, 1973 in Goodhue County, Minnesota) was the son of Peder T. Grove (1849 - 1913) and Maria P. Overboe Grove (1858 - 1914). His wife was Gurena Fenne Grove (1892 - 1956). His brother was Gilbert Christian Grove (1891 - 1951)
Both brothers are buried in Dale Lutheran Church Cemetery, Wanamingo, Goodhue County, Minnesota.
Clarence J. Quam ((1894 - 1947) is buried in the same cemetery as is Henry Christopher Quam (1890 - 1957).
