Diane Olson, who is a relative of Nels Lillejord’s wife, Bergit, has sent us two photos. She writes:

‘After seeing the photo (on this web site) of my great grandmother’s sister (Bergit Sorteberg) and her family , I have identified two photos.  In one photo, Bergit is sitting on an ostrich!  I can only think this would have happened at the Minnesota State Fair since they lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota according to the census.  Maybe someone knows the history of this strange photo!’

The other photo shows two girls with kittens and a well dressed little boy. Diane says the children are Gertie, Leonore and Arthur. You may see the photos here.
