Andreas Larsen Dahl, Children Standing in front of Wooden Fence, ca. 1872. Source: Wisconsin Historical Society.

Six children stand in front of a wooden fence that has posts and picket fence gate. A cat sits on the walk behind them and their mother sits on the porch with a baby. The Greek Revival house has the Norwegian-American Hekla Fire Insurance Company sign over its door. The linear organization used here was one adopted by Dahl early in his career. Said to be the Al Meyer residence, 7400 block of Elmwood, in Middleton.
