"Skutvik sisters". Who were they? Carlton Appelo of Rosburg, Washington has requested that I attempt to locate the identity of the women in this photograph that belonged to his father, Karl Arthur Appelö. Karl Arthur was born in the parish of Sideby, Finland in 1890. He immigrated to the US in 1906, where he changed his name to Carl Arthur (C.A.) Appelo and settled in Deep River, Washington. He returned to Finland several times to visit his Appelö relatives.
The following text is written on the back of the photo: "CA Appelo Pix" Skutvik Systar (Systrar?) ??? beu 4/27/29 " which I assume might indicate that it was taken on 27 April 1929. Carlton has indicated that this photo might have been taken in Helsinki.
My question: Can anyone identify the women in this photograph? I appreciate any information that someone can provide about this photograph.
