Wonderful photo Mike - with musicians in the family they were probably invited to a lot of parties.  This may have been such an occasion.  They are certainly dressed for some kind of celebration.  Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful photo.  I really liked Smiley's bio as well.

Great photo, and a nice profile for Smiley to boot. Fascinating search for the true name.

I love this picture of Smiley Orr's family. I love the violins the man and little boy look like they might have been playing before the picture was taken.

I wonder if the little girls are twins. It looks like they are dressed identically down to their shoes and the ribbons in their hair.

I wish the two women in the middle didn't have their faces scratched. I was thinking one might be a mother and the other a grandmother, but it is a little hard to tell.

I would have to date this picture around 1900 because of the green surrounding the picture. I wonder if the boys have flowers in their lapels.

This picture is very cool because it was taken outside. How far are they from their home? They look like they are sitting on chairs.....

This is a totally cool picture. Thank you for sharing with your WikiTree family, and God BLess.
