Red & White Grocery Store

Description: Copy negative of the Red & White Grocery store in Danevang, Texas. It is a large two-story structure with gable roofs and a tiered wall on the front facade that bears the name of the store as well as a much larger line of text that reads, "Farmers Co-operative Society, Inc." It would seem that the building served dual purposes. A group of men can be seen loitering near the front entrance, and a few others near a car on the left. The roof on a single-story structure in the rightmost part of the image appears to have fallen down. According to accompanying information, there was a hurricane in 1945, which may explain the general disarray of the scene.

[St. Ansgar's Church After 1945 Storm]

Description: Photograph of the front facade of St. Ansgar's Church in Danevang, Texas. According to accompanying information, the photograph was taken shortly after a 1945 hurricane destroyed the church. Left standing is the main entry to the church. This structure is surrounded by different construction materials - roofing, large wooden poles, walls and siding - piled up in large heaps. A few small trees are scattered around the church. To the left of this destruction, in the foreground of the image, is a tombstone with text on the front that reads "Gudsfred", but the smaller text on it cannot be read with certainty.
