Can someone read the back of this photo (in Danish, I think)?

This is a photo we recently found of my g. grandma Magda (Knudsen) Rasmussen; she is on the left with the fur thing around her neck. Either the handwriting on the back is so bad I cannot make it out or it's in Danish, maybe both :)

Some of it is scribbled out, I have no idea why. It can almost be made out, if I only knew the language......

Any help would be very much appreciated!

And here is another......

I *think* the pregnant woman is Anne (Rasmussen) Knudsen and the man is her husband (my gg grandfather) Lauritz Knudsen. I don't know who the blond girl is standing in between them though.

Appreciate any help, thank you!

The first one:
The address of Mrs Greier could be of interest?
As I read it (after some photo manipulation - removing the blue)

116 Market Str.
Wilmington
NC

Yes! When Magda immigrated to the US, a person in NC was listed as the person she was traveling to, an L. Greer. I wonder then if one of the ladies in the picture is L. Grier? Thank you so much for figuring this out. This further verifies the Magda Knudsen passenger record that we found for her :)

Karsten,

Thanks also for the photo/link to the address in NC, very cool to see the building! The look of it probably has not changed too much since then, with the exception of the bar/grill on the bottom I suppose.

Lots of Greers in NC.

If I should pick one family as the host I would go for
