I saved this photo at some point in the past and titled it “Dillner.” Call it sloppy archiving on my part, but I’m guessing that might be his last name and on the front of the photo is the photographer’s name, which looks like it’s maybe S. F. Dahlquist. The address is 19 E. Superior St., Duluth. So that’s what we’ve got to go on.
There are thousands of pictures like this in shoe boxes at antique stores or for sale on eBay for $2 — the details and identities seemingly lost forever.
The objectives of the Duluth Mystery Photo series are:
1) Maybe someone will actually recognize a person or find a clue that helps unravel the mysteries of a photo.
2) At the very least, it’s an opportunity for you to write fan fiction about characters and scenery in random old pics.
