Photo Number 2148

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the antique shop in Duluth Minnesota.
Unknown couple Duluth Postard Noko
Pakonen in Virginia Minnesota was the photographer.  W. Henry Pakonen was at 103 North Second Ave W in Virginia Minnesota from 1914 to 1923.

I will guess that this photograph was nearer to the 1914 date. Noko postcards were used from 1907 to the 1920’s.
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Virginia is a city in Saint Louis County, Minnesota. How's that for confusing geography? :)

  2. Henry W Pakonen was my grandfather, he was an artist
    I heard he also retouched the photo "Grace"

  3. The photographer was my grandfather.
    Henry Pakonen also retouched the famous photo "Grace" according to my father
    Not sure if this is true.

    1. The painting "Grace" was captured in Bovey Minnesota. There is a building in town that has a large painting of "Grace" on the outside. It has very interesting history:)
