I think it's interesting to look at group photos because I believe they can tell you something about relationships among the individuals. For example, Richard, on the left, has his head inclined just slightly away from the group - not quite so connected. Two siblings have their hands on the shoulders of three others. They must have been close. And Dora, with her head included toward William, was probably closer to him than Ernest, on her right. Ottis, on the right, isn't connecting with anyone except because his head is inclined slightly. Do you have any anecdotal information about the relationships among the siblings. It would be interesting to compare the stories and the photo.

I like the fact that spouses were not included but I wonder if there's another photo in someone's possession that includes the spouses. Sometimes several photos were taken on the same roll of film and divided up (rather than having copies made).

I hope your wrist is improving. It's nice to see you blogging more regularly again.
