Handwritten notes on the originals identify this young woman as Elna Hazelgreen at the age of 21. Since Elna was born in 1894, the photographs must have been taken in 1915. The photographer's imprint shows they were taken at the Koch Studio in LaPorte, Indiana (operated, I suppose, by Henry E. Koch).

I know that Elna's sister, Esther Hazelgreen Babcock Anderson, was living in LaPorte at the time of the 1920 Census. Perhaps she had already moved there by 1915, and Elna came for a visit, and during the visit had these photos taken.
