I only know one of these people: Severina Elizabeth Nelson, my great-grandmother (back row, second from the right). The photo was likely taken in Albert Lea, Minnesota in about 1896. I suspect it’s some sort of confirmation class (or possibly an 8th grade graduation). I don’t know. I’m digging the upside-down flowers as corsages though.
If you know any of these people, hit me on the contact page.
(Okay, this wasn’t really wordless. Sorry.)
