Emma, the eldest daughter, is absent from the photo. I did not have the opportunity to meet any of them, but William (with the hat) was always known as a "fancy dresser".  The cute little guy (seated) is my grandfather, who died 7 years before I was born.

The oldest girl seems to be in charge. "Hold still everyone. Just for one more minute."

What a Photograph. I am sure it has been treasured down through the generations. All nicely dressed, The oldest girl has a very pretty dress and the oldest boy is dressed handsomely with the three piece suit , the handkerchief in the breast pocket, even holding a hat. Perhaps a derby hat? All he is missing is the pocket watch. How did they get so many children to sit long enough to take the picture?
