Another old picture that I just love !! My Dad's family were members of a Lutheran church and this was taken on Dad's confirmation day, which as I understand, took place when he was 16. This would date the photo at 1927. His youngest brother, Calvin, looks to be just a few months old, so he may have been baptized at that same time, since they are pictured together. It always has amazed me that no matter how financially stressed families may have been, they always had at least one nice "dress" suit of clothing. And, it seems, there was always enough money to have professional photographs taken.
