Leaving Pioneer House

Description: Photograph of a group of people standing outdoors near what appears to be a single-story structure. Two older men are walking towards a white car on the left, while others are heading towards a black truck closest to the house. Though mostly cropped out of the picture on the right side, the house is in different stages of repair. The roof and the walls have been covered with different construction underlayments, but the patio's entire wood framework can still be seen. In the distance, a few trees and telephone poles are visible.

[Boy Scouts Biting Into Watermelon Slices]

Description: Photograph of the Boy Scouts of America standing before a single-story structure with the word "Douglass" written on it. The children, with the exception of a few who are in the back, are wearing traditional Boy Scout uniforms: shirts with button-flap pockets, caps, and neckerchiefs. They are all holding large slices of watermelons; some are biting into them. An adult female and an adult male are in the back on the right. Although names have been provided, they can only be applied with certainty to the first three children on the left - Kenneth Strarup, Donald Lykke, and Carl Hansen - and to the last five on the right - Lester Wind, Gertrude Hansen, Leroy Strarup, Lawrence Harton, and Carl Marius Hansen Sr.
