1911 photo of unidentified young woman taken in Racine, WI
Posted by: Paul Peterson (ID *****2235) Date: December 01, 2011 at 19:15:25

I purchased a RPPC (Real Photo Postcard) (not postally used) depicting a young woman taken by D. Wilger, Racine, WI. Below her portrait is handwritten:

Ram. 14. 8-9."

Handwritten on the back of the card is the following message:

"Racine 9-6-1911.

Kave Wen!
Fredens Hilsen!

Perhaps someone will translate this message into English and discover clues as to the woman's identity.
