This old cabinet card photo, for sale on eBay, was shot in Duluth. Several details are provided, but some mysteries persist.

Writing on the back of the card tells us the gals in the photo are “sisters of McDowell family,” identifying them from left to right as: “Mama, Aunt Stella Page, Tressie McDowell, Aunt Dora and Aunt Maude Johnson. Since the photo is likely more than a century old, even little Tressie is almost certainly deceased. Did any of these McDowell sisters leave more of a historical mark on Duluth than this image? Well, that’s our primary mystery.
