Who are these girls? What basketball team were they on? Why were they in a photo shot in 1911 on a postcard mailed in 1911 with “Champions 1913” written on the ball?
What we do know, based on the signature on the image, is the photo was taken by Duluth photographer Louis Dworshak, owner of the Dworshak Studio at 8 N. Second Ave. W.
Interesting side note: Louis Dworshak was the father of Lois Dworshak, a famous ice skater who appeared in the 1941 film Ice-Capades.
But back to the postcard …
The postcard was mailed in May of 1911 to Miss Mildred Smith of Waltham, Mass.:
My dearest Mil:
I am off for one more day of misery. Pick out the homeliest here and it is I. I was down to see “Edith” last evening and had a nice time. She has never never talked so seriously before. She gave me a list of books to read. Please write a line.
Goodbye lovingly, Loddie.
