Photo Number 2446

These are snapshots from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.  I am not sure if these are foreign photos or not.

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.
