This is a photograph from Craig’s Collection.

J.W. Riggs  in  Marshfield Oregon
I think the gals name is Emma Wielelend ? Wickland or Wicklund
These on the diagonal photos were popular from 1895 to 1905.
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Iggy:
In Ancestry, the best fit (of several) appears to be:

Emma Wicklund
Age in 1910: 34
Birth Year: abt 1876
Birthplace: Finland
Home in 1910: North Bend, Coos, Oregon
Race: White
Gender: Female
Immigration Year: 1900
Relation to Head of House: Wife
Marital Status: Married
Spouse's Name: Albert Wicklund
Father's Birthplace: Finland
Mother's Birthplace: Finland

This Emma appears to have been widowed by 1920 and moved to Los Angeles with her son, Kermit. She was then a Dressmaker.

In 1930, the son is listed as a step-son to Alfred Gunnell as Emma remarried. The family is back in Coos County, Oregon.

    1. I think you are definitely right Sue, I found a J W Riggs that worked as a photographer in Marshfield, Oregon.

      "JAMES W. RIGGS (1877-81 Ashland, 1883-87 Lewiston, Idaho, 1887 Roseburg, 1889-1913 Marshfield)"

  4. I think the name is Emma WICKLUND or Emma WICKLAND. There seem to be some entries at ancestry. But I am not a member there.

  6. Kermit married Cora Solome Evans and had one child. The family lived in Marshfield Oregon in 1938.

    I suspect Cora remarried --
