Two men, horses and a wagon.  I have tried to decipher the name on the building in the background with no success.

I don’t know if Orville is in the photo or if the card was meant for him.
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I liked seeing the cropped farm yard scene. Lots of history in the styles of the buildings.

  2. I think the "red" building with the cupola says "Wadena Lumber".

    If I recall correctly, you had a photo on the museum site that might have been the Wadena railroad station (which included the lumber yard).

    I found an Orville Paulson living in Rockwood, Wadena... listed as a farmer. Maybe... maybe not.

    1. Yes I remember that old postcard. Could be Wadena Lumber on this card..:)

    2. I dunno...sounds convincing to me :)

      Hooray that it's a photograph with a name attached to it, even if wasn't the name of either of the two men in the photo. It's still a connection!
