Photo Number 2029

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Gustav Clauson DL ant
A man with his horses and his home in the background.  Looks like he was going out to rake hay.
Gustav Clauson DL ant back
We have two names Gustav Clauson and Annie Clauson
The postcard was used from 1904 to 1918.
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Gustav seems to be Find A Grave Memorial# 79398027.

    But there are two or three Gustav's running around and they were all born about the same time.

    1. There is an Anna C Clausen buried in Goodhue County Red Wing MN Find a Grave #91083373

    2. In the same cemetery as Anna, is Martha. The 1940 US Census lists her as the wife of "Gust A." and he is the same person in Find A Grave Memorial# 79398027.

    3. I wonder if Anna (Annie) was his Mother?

  2. I had to look twice to see the second horse. I would say whoever build the house also built the shed. New bracing is in order.

  3. One strong breeze and that house is flat. I'd be worried going to bed at night that it wouldn't fall if someone snored too loud.
