This is a really interesting set of images; the first showing a large church, the second showing a church and congregation somewhere in India. The large church shown in the first picture is a beautiful building with a 3-story tower and a covered walkway that runs around the side of the building. Because the images were taken by a Minneapolis photographer, I thought this church must be out in the Minnesota countryside somewhere until I noticed the thatch-roofed hut visible in the background beyond the tower. Printed along one side of the image is “Ebenezer Kirke taget fra den lille Vanddam” (I believe this is Danish, reading "Ebenezer Church taken from the small Vanddam"). The second picture shows another large church, but this one much more rustic (it has a thatch roof and wooden “shutter” doors). Out in front of the church (and stretching as far as the eye can see) are probably a hundred Indian men and women (the women, with some children, are standing on the porch). Standing in the crowd are 9 or 10 Caucasian men and women who I’m assuming were missionaries. Printed along the side of this image is “Theforsamling paa Bag eller Ostsiden af Seminariet” (again Danish for "The assembly at the Rear or east side of college"). It's possible these images are related to Serampore College of West Bengal India. The college was founded by English missionaries in 1818 but, because Serampore was a Danish colony, the school was given a royal charter by the Danish king in 1827.

Photographer for both pictures is “Dorge” of Minneapolis, Minn.

Both images are beautifully crisp and clear, but do show soiling. The cards are in good condition, with soiling, a tiny bit of wear to the corners and edges, and cupping.

Please see the "Shop Policies" section for information on combined shipping and all the small print. Thank you!
