This real photo postcard of three boys wearing hats was addressed to Miss Laura Ness in Litchfield, Minnesota. It was signed "From Your Friend Emil." The postcard was in an eBay lot with several other postcards from an estate located in or near Meeker County, Minnesota (Litchfield area).
This postcard is addressed, but not stamped and postmarked. I have two other postcards sent to Laura Ness--one sent to Strout, Minnesota in 1908 and the other sent to Litchfield, Minnesota in 1918. With this information, I thought I would be able to find Laura in a census, but I couldn't. The closest I came was a 2007 obituary for a man who was born in 1928 and was possibly her son.
Addendum--Information about Laura Ness from dawn-in-nz:
I found her in the 1910 census living in Litchfield, MN, she was aged 18, parents Martin & Hannah. On ancestry she's listed in the index under 'NEAS'. She's still in Litchfield in 1920 & by 1930 she had married Albert Strom.
