Photo Number 2059

This is a photo from the antique shop in Crookston Minnesota.  It may go with the other Johnson photos.

It is marked A. Johnson on the bottom.

Tillie, Emily and Olga

Scratched face

Not sure how or if it fits…perhaps the girls gave the photo to Alexander or John Alfred  Johnson…just speculation.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. If they are family, I would doubt they were "with" Alexander - he died young in 1917. John Alfred's wife was Emilia - and perhaps called Emily. She had a couple sisters - named Oltina (Olga) and Minnie (Manny in the Census).

    1. Alexander was 23/24 when he died. He could have been given this photo by his friends who were girls:)

  2. One of these girls died young - the same year as Alexander. Perhaps Alexander and Alfred dated and/or married sisters.

  3. Wonder why the scratched face? Or am I just reading between the lines too much?

    1. I think that the gal with the scratched face died young and they crossed her off the photo. Many time they would mark a cross on top of a persons head in the photo if they had died. But anything is possible.
