I think that is a bottle of alchol on the counter and a drink has been mixed…maybe a Martini from the looks of the glass.  I wonder what she is cooking.?  Note the fold up plastic accordion thing in the doorway.

Dear Agnes, Did you know that I was way over here? It is really an interesting and beautiful place to spend two years, better come see us?  Have been wanting to write a long letter al about it- but the semi –tropical atmosphere does the damage to one’s spirits that household duties seem about all I can manage.  Dad has an operation for appendicitis + gall bladder removed but reports are he is getting along fine.  Hope you are all well and very happy.  Lovingly Ann

From LarsI
The first text is "Jeg og de yngste" (Norwegian), "Me and the youngest" (the two youngest on the second picture, I assume).

The second name is "John Magnus", I think. År = year(s old).

From the clothes and the house, this picture could have been taken in Norway.


I believe this could be
Mary Jensen, b. 12/3 1900 d 1967,
Fritjof Jensen, b. 4/12 1930, 
John Magnus Jensen, b. 15/6 1929 d.15/5 2003
Per Jensen, b. 18/5 1924, d. 1967.

I found this information here, the second photo is a photo of the mother and the three sons.

This website is about a "disappeared community", a community that had to be removed due to construction of a military airport in Bodø, Norway, in the fifties. The other photos at the page documents the movement of the house (Perheim), which I believe can be the same house as in this post.

What happened to the father (dead? And/or sailor?) it doesn't say. How the pictures ended up in Minnesota is also intriguing (may be one of the boys moved?). It seems Frithjof was alive in 2013, he is also listed as a source for the web-site.
