  • The banner held in the center of the photograph identifies the group as the "Bjerkreim Laget", a kommune in Stavanger Amt, now known as Rogaland fylke.
  • The building in the background appears to be the same building as in the Stavangerlaget 1923 image which is labeled as being in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
  • Further examination of the photograph shows that a number of the same people, wearing the same clothes, appear in both photographs.
