Congregation outside a large tent

This is a photo of Sunday morning church congregation gathered in front of a large tent. Several members of the Suderman family have been identified by Harold Suderman with some certainty. Approximately in the centre left is Annie Suderman wearing a lace-collar white shirt under a dark jacket open at the front. Margaret Suderman, with shadowed face, is on Annie's left and Susan Suderman well to Margaret's left. Dora Suderman, 10 years of age at the time, could be the girl in a dress with white buttons and black stripe on sleeve standing in front of and to Susan's right. Dora's face is largely obscured by a hand and cap. Harry Suderman, aged 14, is probably the teenager in grey suit and cap standing behind the last youngster squatting on the ground in front. The dog had to get into the picture too. On the far right stands a bearded and mustachioed man in a suit and felt hat who could be Johann P. Suderman.
