Description

We are not sure wheter this from Norway or not. Even the persons may be wrongly identified. It could well be Hans Smith and wife some where in Norway. The caption text used right hereafter is not an original text. "Pastor Johnson og frue" ("Pastor Johnson and his wife"). They are sitting in their living room reading and knitting. They have a beautiful heating stove and a kerosene lamp hanging over the table. -- Johannes Johnson was a missionary in Madagascar from 1892-1911. He married Dagny Liv, maiden name Heidenreich, in Krageroe, Norway on July 4, 1892.
