Meeting of the Moscow Læseselskab (reading society), Moscow, Iowa County, Wisconsin, ca. 1876. When railroad construction finally reached the area of Moscow, it bypassed Moscow itself. Within a decade, both the town and its prestigious Norwegian library association were no more. Rasmus Anderson and perhaps even Ole Bull had spoken to the group in its heyday.

His photographs are of exceptional quality regarding both choice of motifs and technique. Dahl stopped taking pictures in 1883 when he was ordained as a Lutheran pastor. He was a dedicated minister during the next 40 years of his life. Dahl died in 1923, and his surviving photographs are now in the collection of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin.)
