My great aunt wrote on the back of the snapshot:
“Effie and I on our way to school – Effie’s horse and house.”
Momence, IL ca 1908
When we were looking through pictures, My Tante Ragnhild would “tsk, tsk” when we came to Effie. She rented rooms to young women, most of them immigrants from Norway. Some of the relatives who lived nearby thought Effie was too controlling and overbearing. I think there was more to the story . I’ll bet you can tell which one is Effie. Tante Ragnhild died on her 102nd birthday.
