This photo was taken ~1897 and shows the four children of Antonie and Peter Meyer. From left to right: Herman (my grandfather) Louis, Anna, and Carl (Sharon's grandfather). My mother always said the frocks were probably something the photographer added to make the portray seem more regal. A nice looking Norwegian/American family, no?
I have many other photos from the early 20th century passed down to me from my Aunt Marjorie. You, Sharon, and your dad might recognize people from that collection that I can't.
