Fred's family facts & photos, Part V: Dear Mother, Grandmother and kids
We're on shaky ground here, extrapolating from likenesses, photographers' studios, paired photos clearly taken at the same time... and so on. These are believed to be Fred's grandmother (left) and mother - taken before 1900. The children may be about 1900-1910 - a very broad guess.
