Sunday, May 28, 1911

On the back of this photo, written in pencil, is the date, Sunday, May 28, 1911. The young people in the photo appear to be dressed up. Since, there was a special notation that the photo was taken on a Sunday, I am going to guess the photo was taken at church. Perhaps, there was a confirmation or a special Sunday gathering.

The back of the photo contains names. But I cannot guarantee I am copying them correctly. The pencil markings are faded in places. I also cannot tell you the order of the names in correlation with the children. But, to the best of my knowledge, the information reads:

  • S.M.E. Orchestion
  • Sunday, May 28, 1911
  • Alice Carlquist
  • Elsie Erickson
  • Helene Norberg
  • Eva Carlquist
  • Edna Esseer
  • E.E. Itarry Anderson
  • Laurie Carlquist
  • Gust Magnuson

I wish I could read the plaque at the right of the photo, hanging on the brick. I think the information on the plaque would provide more clues to the photo.

What do you think?
