My great-great-grandmother wrote on the back of this picture. According to her they are in West Branch, Michigan. And the people are: Agda, Henry, Dara, Ed, Dad (my great-great-grandfather), Arvid, Uno (?), Melvin (?), Henry Jr. The questions marks are hers.
This is an interesting one to me. First of all, Agda. She’s the one sitting in the guy’s lap NOT looking at the camera. Based on what I know speculate about Agda, this is SO her! (You might want to catch up on all the Agda pics. They are…interesting.) If you look closely you can see how the focus is really crisp and clear on my great-great-grandfather and then blurry around the edges. I also like the little boy’s faces…no matter the time-period, boys will be boys! And the house is just full to me–the dark wood, the numbers on the top and what’s that on the right—flowerpots? Very interesting picture.
