These two cabinet cards presumably feature two different women, although they look a touch similar. The mystery isn’t just who they are, but also what the deal was with Howorth.
A few details the internet provides:
According to the Minnesota Historical Society’s Directory of Photographers, C.W. Howorth operated at 1627 W. Superior St. circa 1891-’92. That location is a parking lot today, across the street from Kia of Duluth.
There is at least one Howorth image elsewhere on the internet …
This photo is from rotter.se and the caption, translated from Swedish to English, reads:
The portrait represents Fredrik Dalsjö born in Fränninge, Skåne 1861-07-10 with family. He was the son of Magnus Petter Dalsjö, born in 1824 and Hanna Fredriksdotter, born in 1821. Together with his siblings Johan and Maria Dalsjö, they emigrated to America. Further fate unknown.
So, perhaps consider the unknown fates of the Dalsjö’s as yet another mystery.
