[Hans & Emilie Nelsen Home]

Description: Two photographs held together by a piece of tape on the back. They are both images of the Nelsen family home, taken at disparate times. The top photograph, a Polaroid print, was taken from a side angle a short distance away from a disheveled fence. The house has white siding and hip roofs, as well as several windows of identical design and dimensions. A young boy is standing near an entrance off to the right in the shadows. The bottom photograph, taken much earlier than the first and from a farther distance, captures the front view of the house. A gable roof projection in the first floor creates an overhang for the front entrance. It appears to have been taken during the winter judging by the snow-covered lawn and trees. In the distance, an outbuilding can be seen, presumably a part of the Nelsen homestead.
