David and  Jerry nailed it. If there ever has been a photo that should grace the cover of a WikiTree book- this is it. (I'm thinking something like "That Was Then, This Is Now: How a Bunch of Folks Came Together Over A Few Old Records") Just day-dreaming....

Excellent Family Treasure ! .. Historical Masterpiece ! 

I like the representations of their dogs, horses and cow depicted as a part of the family. Cherished Farm animals worked for their keep and were essential for prosperity and preservation. I like the salt of the earth healthy pride, togetherness and what might have been a Sunday afternoon in their thankful best shown among the blessings they wanted to convey to others. Beautiful .. 

C'est Bon Magnifique !
