Fanny Bjornsen

Here I am again, populating your buildings with people... Fanny Bjornsen was Fanny Lind Bjornsen, born in 1888 in Denmark. She appears in the 1930 Census with her husband Nicolai living in La Porte, Indiana. By 1936 she is living at 3040 Chadwick Drive in Los Angeles. That is an interesting small stucco house with a sort of crenellated tower in the front. She is listed as a housewife. Nicolai died in 1936. Fanny probably went to work in the beauty shop when she was widowed. She had two sons to support. She later owned her own beauty shop, but I do not find where it was located. A 1940 directory shows that she lived at 5105 Templeton Street in LA. She died in Santa Barbara county in 1979. A 1972 directory show her living in Solvang.
