[Two Photographs of Danevang Citizens, Mounted and Labeled]

Description: Copy photograph of two black and white photographs that have been mounted on a dark mat with descriptive labels. The top photograph is of Bodel Petersen (a.k.a. Bestemor Petersen) on her 90th birthday. She is seated on a leather chair on an enclosed porch whose banisters are visible. She is wearing glasses, a white blouse, and a skirt. Her hands are placed in her lap. A patterned border frames the picture. Below the photograph is a label denoting the event and both her birth date and death date. Underneath that label is another photograph, which depicts the four daughters of Laurits Lauritsen and their husbands. The four couples are standing in front of a wooden-sided building on which a single window is visible. The men are all dressed in suits and the women are all wearing long skirts or dresses. Clumps of dirt are piled before the group. A label listing the people included in the picture is directly below the photograph.
