On the left, according to my best guess, is a 1914 portrait of my future mother (age one, before her hair turned dark) and her brother Ralph (age seven).  The man-in-the-moon studio backdrop includes a line drawing that greatly resembles the famous airplane Vin Fiz, which made a 1911 cross-country flight with many stops along the way.

In the photo on the right below, the girl holding Ralph's hand appears to be about his age.  I can't guess who she is.

At the bottom of this page, Ralph gives my 4½-year-old future mother a piggyback ride across a Curtis Ridge field in the summer of 1917.
