Shared Photo: Simon Triesch and his Extended Family

+10 votes
I wanted to share this family photo of Simon Triesch and his extended family with the community. Location: Benton County Washington. Date: About 1910. Simon was an immigrant from Germany, arriving in 1876 as a child with his widowed mother and three siblings. Typically photos from this era were severely staged. My guess is that the photographer accidentally snapped a photo between takes. I love the fact that the whole family seems to enjoy what they are doing. A true candid moment on the prairie.
