[Portrait of Pastor Dan Lauderdale and Family]

Description: Studio portrait photograph of the Lauderdale family in front of a cloudy, brown backdrop. The man in the very back who stands above the rest is Pastor Dan Lauderdale. He wears a striped red shirt with white trim accents on his collar and sleeves. The older woman whose hair has been pulled back and pinned with flowers is Pastor Dan Lauderdale's mother, Dorothy Galbraith Lauderdale. Cindy Lauderdale is seated on the right and wears a red gingham dress. She is Pastor Dan's wife. Their two children are in the front, Rachel and Tabitha; however, these names have not been matched properly to their individual positions.

[Duus Family Portrait]

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. On the back row from left to right are Verner, Sibyl, and Erling Duus. Sibyl's 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.
