Hello,

I found this message on the back of what appears to be a school picture of teenage boys and girls. They are all dressed in dark clothing. The girls are wearing long dark brown or black dresses and the boys are wearing dark suits , some with ties and vests. I suspect it is a picture of my granadfather Charles Karl Hellgren, who immigrated from Oravais 05/06/1900.
The words on the back are: Ett mine fran (dot above the a) Karga Hem (or Herr). It is a bit difficult to make out the last word.
Thank you,
Theda

"Ett minne från Karga Hem" is Swedish and it means "A memento from Karga Home".
