A Photo Finds a Home! (#1)

One of my old photographs has finally found a home! While researching this Real Picture postcard of two men and a sod house from Bowman County, North Dakota, I discovered a museum located in Bowman that had many interesting artifacts that told the history of the area. I was even excited to find that a reconstruction of a sod house had been built here and was on display near the museum! I contacted the Pioneer Trails Regional Museum to ask them about the picture and they told me they would love to have it.

I'm just happy I can return this photograph to the town it was sent from over a hundred years ago.

Unknown Men January 20th, 1911 Bowman, North Dakota

This is a Real Photo Postcard  of two men posing in front of a partially-finished sod house. I have a feeling they were pretty proud of their work so far!

The back reads:

Summers weather in Bowman Co. on Jan, 20- 1911

Edna Vitz and Peggy Behl, February 1949 Love Field

Finally- the very last photo in the album has names! At first I thought this photograph seemed unrelated to the others, before I realized the woman on the right (Peggy Behl) was the Mother and the woman on the left (Edna Vitz) was the friend or aunt that appeared in many of the snapshots, both in their later years.

I'm guessing that this was taken at Love Field, in Texas. I'm also guessing that, considering Peggy's last name is Behl, that the family's name is Behl? Maybe now we'll have a better chance of finding the family!

If you know who this family may be, let us know in the comments!
