Ida and Isabel
The postcard from Turtle River of June 1910 was addressed to A. D. Swanson in Swanson, Saskatchewan, and said “Dear Brother,
How are you we are O.K. living here in Turtle [signed] Ida.”
Kregel Photo Parlors was active between 1910 and 1917.
Perhaps Clarence Swanson.
Portrait taken in Moorehead, Minnesota
My brother Jeff Swanson of Gull Lake, Minnesota, says that our cousin Tom (son of Telford) has some evidence that Abraham D. Swanson spent time in Fargo before embarking for Canada, where he founded the town of Swanson, Saskatchewan. Perhaps Fargo was a staging point for homesteading in Saskatchewan. Fargo is just across the Red River from Moorhead. Might this be a picture of Abraham?
