This is the family of Peter Petersen Dam Lund and his wife Alida Sophie Liddie/Lydia nee Wold in about 1905. They are with their first 6 children. Their 7th and last child was born in 1911. Pictured are left to right: standing back row Jens Jensen Lund, Thomas Jorgenson Lund (tall boy), and their daughters, Emma Josephine Lund and Dora Cecelia Lund. Seated in front left to right are: the father, Pete Lund; son Elmer James Lund; and the youngest son in curls, Frank Merril Lund; the mother , Alida nee Wold Lund. In the very front, sleeping on the floor, the careful observer will notice the family dog. The was taken in a studio, so getting that dog to be so cooperative must have been a challenge!
