I wanted to share this family photo of Aasne Nordness with the community. Location: Adams County, North Dakota. Date: 1907. She was an apprentice dressmaker before marrying Mikkel Nordness. Mikkel was killed 08/03/1907 so the date on the photo, written by Maybell Eastman (daughter) was not accurate. The youngest child was born 07/11/1906. They moved to Adams County in April 1907 and Mikkel was killed 08/03/1907 by a Northern Pacific rail car in Dickinson, ND (Dickinson Press, 08/1907)

Beautiful photo - thanks for sharing! My guess is that Aasne made her children's clothes and they are beautiful. With six children life must have been difficult for her after her husband's death.
