m a r k e r i c k s o n p a i n t i n g s Family Photographs - 1865 - 2017 Sweden * Italy * England * France * Germany New York City * California * Colorado * North Dakota
A classic Nelson Family portrait taken nearly one hundred years ago on the family farm in Painted Woods, North Dakota in 1918.
The photograph was well preserved in my grandmother Clara's photo album. She wrote along the margins all the information and the full names of her brothers and parents. I truly thank her for this photograph.

It was the late Summer of 1918 and my uncle Sture was in the Navy and home on-leave visiting his family. Soon after this photograph was taken he would be heading to the east coast and departing on a ship out of the Brooklyn (NY) Port bound for the Atlantic and Europe.
