This photo is for sale on eBay under the heading “Vintage Snapshot Photo Babies Family on Rocks 1920s Duluth Minnesota #250.” The description reads: “Offered is a great vintage picture of a darling baby girl sitting on a pile of rocks with another child and a group of adults. Photo is from the 1920s. I bought these photos from a living estate, and baby’s name is Marge and lives in Duluth Minnesota. This picture was taken down by Lake Superior probably.”
There’s not much to go on here for pinpointing a location, but apparently we do have a baby name. So, who is this Marge?
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.
