Photo of youth with horses, probably Elling Waagedahl
Photo of youth with horses, probably Elling Waagedahl

This photo is attached to the blocking paper behind the Elling and Fern Waagedahl wedding portrait, owned by Elling's daughter Betty( Waagedahal) Ranum, who was unaware of its existence until that photo was removed from the frame for scanning.

It is likely this photo and frame were put together either by Elling's mother or by Leona Davis, Elling's sister-in-law. There were no boys in the Davis family, so it seems likely the wedding photo was placed atop the previous image in the same frame.

According to Betty (Waagedahl) Ranum, the photo was likely taken at the Davis farm, between Newfolden and Holt.
