Update from Iggy:
Henry Bury (1895 in Illinois - 1994) : Find A Grave Memorial# 37623870, married Ruth Williams (1894 - 1992) : Find A Grave Memorial# 37623871 sometime between 1910 and 1920. I suspect the photo is there wedding photo.

They lived in Stockland, Iroquois, Illinois. Henry was a "grain farmer."

The 1930 US census lists them with the following children:
Helen D Bury 14

An older couple all set to go someplace with their hats.  This is a Noko postcard used from 1907to 1920. This is close to the 1907 time frame, her gown is still pigeon breasted.  Sadly this couple will remain unknown as there is no clue to their idenity.

Photo Number 2148

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the antique shop in Duluth Minnesota.
Unknown couple Duluth Postard Noko
Pakonen in Virginia Minnesota was the photographer.  W. Henry Pakonen was at 103 North Second Ave W in Virginia Minnesota from 1914 to 1923.

I will guess that this photograph was nearer to the 1914 date. Noko postcards were used from 1907 to the 1920’s.
Thanks for stopping by.

This is a photo from the antique shop in Duluth Minnesota.
Couple from Duluth DL ant
The Frans’ Studio in Duluth Minn was the photographer.  Turns out his name was Andrew P. Frans and he was in Duluth at 323 West Superior in 1898 and at 223 West Second during 1905.

This is most likely a wedding photograph. The man wears a tiny flower on his lapel and a pretty wild tie.  The woman must like bows as she wears one on her dress and one in her hair.
Thanks for stopping by.

William L Smith was the photographer.
I think this is a photo from the 1920s. It looks like Esther has a short haircut with some curls on both sides of her forehead.  In the early 1920’s it was quite scandalous to cut your long  hair short, the new look was a bob that was either straight or curly.

Thanks for stopping by.
Update from MJM:
It looks like a W.L. Smith was a photographer in Duluth. On the 1940 census I found an Esther Burke (wife) age 41, George M Burke (head)age 65 and Kenneth MacDonald (father-in-law) age 68, living in Duluth.
