Love he kid’s clothes. The look like... well... kids’ clothes from the era. (Why do guys wear jacked-up pants all the time?) I note that the younger lady is a lot more relaxed than the older ones.

Thanks for sharing this photo with us, Steve.

5 generation pictures are a treasure. I have two myself with different people in them.

I was looking at the dates that you shared in the image details and notice that Nancy's dates go backward. Her death date is before her birth date.

That being said, I really love this picture.

It is an excellent picture from that time-period. The wooden porch with the wooden post holding the porch up.

It is a casual picture and not staged. They are all looking comfortable as they sit out in their "front yard".

The cute bush they have growing right next to their house.  And I see flowers on the porch. They also have a metal jar with flowers attached to the house. Beautiful curtains hanging from the front window.

The little boy is adorable in his shorts, his tie and I love his shoes.

Cecilia, thank you for allowing us into their lives.
