Viola Wise DL ant
Stafford & Co of Minneapolis Minn. were the photographers. I believe this photographer was in business from 1891 to 1906.
I will guess from the sleeves on the dress that this photo was taken about 1895.

Great Grandpa Pryor and wife Melie DL ant
Miller was the photographer. He was at the Minneapolis address from 1884 to 1889. The lady wears a bustle so I will guess that the photo was taken sometime 1884 to 1886.

It is addressed to Carrie Swanson Anoka Minn  Box 2657  USA
Carrie Swanson was married to Marshall Swanson and her maiden name was Pryor.  So she is most likely related to this fellow.
I have a few Pryor Photos…and there are a few left at the antique shop from both families (the Pryors and the Swanson/Swensons) I only bought a sampling.
This was a AZO postcard that was used from 1904 to 1918.
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
Theodore Eugene (Gene) Pryor
Birth Jun 09, 1867 in Washington Co. Ohio 
Death Aug 31, 1935 in Isanti MN 

He was one of Carrie's older brothers. The 1900 US census shows him as a house painter.

I wonder how he is related to John and Gertrude, or John, Martha and Marshall Swenson/Swanson?
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
This photo looks like the previous photo in tone - and Ellsworth was the sole son and oldest child of Marshall and Carrie Swanson.

Ellsworth Hamilton Swanson (7 Oct 1896 in Anoka County, Minnesota - 18 Jan 1961) 

The 1940 US Census shows him as a dry cleaner with his family:

Wife - Anna Swanson 42
Children:   Louise F Swanson 20, Marshall Swanson 17, Robert Emil Swanson 2

Louise Francis (4 Oct 1919 - 18 Apr 2004) she married a Pruitt.
