1911 & 1918 photos of Hilda, Hilmer, Elvira, Hugo, Edla & Advil Larson

I purchased the subject family group portraits at an antiques store in Alameda, CA. Although lacking any surname, I was able to identify the family from the combination of given names. The earlier photo, consisting of two prints made from the same exposure, are identified on the back of the mounts:

"1911
taken

Edvil
Edla
Hugo
Elvira
Hilmer"

and

"taken 1911
Came to San Francisco
1911 Dec"

The later photo is identified on the back of the mount:

"taken 1918

Mother
Hilmer
Elvia
Hugo
Edla
Edvil"

The family is listed in the 1910 Census data for Spokane (resided at 701 Third Avenue), Spokane Co., WA; the 1920 Census data for San Francisco (resided at 780 Fink Street), San Francisco Co., CA; and the 1930 Census data for San Francisco (resided at 579 Buena Vista Avenue), San Francisco Co., CA. Hilda W. Larson (maiden name Ohl) is listed in the "California Death Index, 1940-1997." Born 2 Jul 1865 in Sweden, died 25 Nov 1947 in San Francisco, CA, she immigrated in 1889. She married a Mr. Larson, given name unknown (she was widowed by the time of the 1910 enumeration and I can't find the family listed in the 1900 Census data). Hilda had five children:

Hilmer Edward Larson, born 10 Mar 1885 in CO, died 26 Feb 1960 in Alameda Co., CA

Elvira Hilda Larson, born 16 May 1897 in CO, died 10 Jan 1986 in San Francisco, CA (the death index gives her mother's maiden name as Wilhemina)

Hugo John Larson, born 16 Feb 1900 in CO, died 6 Apr 1968 in San Francisco, CA (the death index gives his mother's maiden name as Ols)

Edla Larson, born about 1904 in CO

Edvil Joseph Larson, born 12 Jul 1906 in CO, died 31 Jul 1989 in San Mateo Co., CA (the death index gives his mother's maiden name as Wilhemina)
