We don't know the names of any of these children, nor the date the photo was taken. All we know is what's written on the slate held by the girl in the middle of the front row: "Hobart Ind. Grade 5."

Since this picture comes from the McAuliffe-Hahn collection, perhaps one of the Hahn brothers is in this photo. Arthur Hahn would have been in the fifth grade around 1909, Edward around 1916 (and I don't know when Hubert was born).

According to, the stamp box on the back of the postcard dates to 1904-1918.
