Re: Photographs on Certificates of Naturalization #general

I have the original citizenship papers for both of my parents.
My father became a US citizen on September 17, 1931. His document is
a "Certificate of Citizenship" issued by the Southern District Court
My mother became a citizen on July 13, 1943. Her document is a
"Certificate of Naturalization" issued by the Eastern District
Court of NY.
Each of these documents has a photo attached and a signature
of the new citizen at the bottom of the photo.
Perhaps the difference between the two different certificate
headings deals with the location of the District Court involved
or the decade in which they were issued. My father's certificate
says "Department of Labor" on the bottom and my mother's certificate
says "Department of Justice" on the bottom.
