Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

This particular card features a lovely poinsettia bouquet, tied with an actual ribbon. The greeting came from the Fritsch Art Gallery in Owatanna, MN. It could be a complete coincidence, but there is an artist named Katherine Fritsch who has a sculpture placed in Owatanna – a giant blue rooster.

The more likely sender of the card was Henry Fritsch, in business between 1938-1953 +/-. He was in operation on West Vine at two different locations.
