Notes Online Facebook ("Old Saint Paul" group) comment from Jim Sazevich (3.21.2017):

"About half of the wealthy citizens of St. Paul spent much of their summers at White Bear Lake, one of our oldest St. Paul suburbs, and the other half at Lake Minnetonka in Hennepin County. The people in the photo are likely killing time until the train arrives standing in front of the Hardy Grocery in White Bear. Maxim Joseph Hardy and his wife operated the store for many years. The posted photo was likely taken around 1895 - 1900."
