Stop Teasing Your Grandma!

To me, these unidentified people suggest three generations of a family. I don't know what that kid in the striped sweater, at center, is doing with his hands. Is he making devil's horns behind his grandma's head?? — kids these days!

This photo was among Lillie Newman Barnes', but it wasn't in the "John Gruel Farm" envelope. Like an earlier photo from the envelope, it includes a well kept setting, canna lilies and a gentleman with white facial hair … who's now in profile, inconveniently for comparison; moreover, the world is full of canna lilies; and furthermore, going by the women's fashions, I would set this photo in the mid- to late 1920s, meaning there's at least 15 years between the two photos.

Short answer: I don't know.
