Postcard from the Jorgensons on Minnesota Point

Remember the Pettersen gals photo on Point of Rocks? Well, they’ve turned up in another old Duluth pic, this time on the beach at Minnesota Point.

Herb Dillon saw the Point of Rocks photo and recognized the names. “I have this postcard of them posted 1911 with more of the family,” he wrote.

The back of the card gives the date July 30, 1911, and lists the names of those posed. Standing top and center is Mr. Jorgenson. Left of him, Mrs. Jorgenson.The gentleman on the left is Oscar Jorgenson. The two gals at the back right are Ida Jorgenson and Emma Juberg. In the front row at left are Emma, Nora and Inga Pettersen (the gals from the Point of Rocks postcard). Next to them is Ruth Jorgensen. At the lower right are two people identified as “Auntie and Ralph.”
