[Duus Family Portrait]

Date: 1942/1947
Creator: unknown
Description: Studio portrait photograph of the Duus family in front of a blank backdrop. The three individuals in the back are standing and embracing each other, all of whom are the children of Gerda and Pastor Vagn Duus. The two boys have not been properly identified, only the names Verner and Erling have been provided, but the girl in between them is Sibyl Duus. Her hand appears to be around the shoulder of her mother, Gerda, who wears horn-rimmed glasses, a blazer, and matching skirt. She is seated on the arm rest of a wooden chair, which is occupied by Pastor Vagn Duus. The words "Merry Christmas" have been printed on the top margin of the photograph. There is hand-written text on the back, but with the exception of the heading, which reads, "To Danish Ladies Aid member", the rest appears to be written in Danish or a similar Germanic language.
