CHARLES DOBIE : LOCAL HISTORY
CROSBY, NORTH DAKOTA

Crosby, North Dakota, about 1918

This is only one photo album in a large collection of mostly unidentified photos owned by my mother, Margaret Carlson. She has identified the people here as Carlson and Hanmer children. One photo is dated Aug. 20, 1918. Only a few photos have been identified, and those only with first names.

Two photos of presumably a Hanmer child. The buildings in the background should help identify a location.

The boy holding the child on page 4 is almost certainly Bernard (Barney) Carlson. That's probably him with the hat as well. The others must be members of the Hanmer family.

This boy is unknown, but presumably is a Hanmer. This is the last page of photos -- the rest of the album pages are blank.
