The reason why we know each other

This photo was taken in Anna and Helge's home at Norra Vägen 6 in Värnamo, around 1940. During the years 1935 to 1937 the three youngest of Greta's children came to Sweden, escaping from a difficult and demanding (widowed) stepmother in the US. Kerstin and her three youngest children also came, escaping from the poverty following the financial depression.

The back row from the left: Kerstin Ring, Margaret Andersen, a Finnish girl (that Anna took in during the war), Else Andersen, Anna Wennberg with another Finnish girl, Helge Wennberg. The front row: Chris Andersen, Ted Ring, Dick Ring, Sylvia Ring and Stina Wennberg.
