It's in the eyes....

Initially, by looking at the eyes, I felt that this family photo includes Mom, Dad, and eight biological siblings,plus one in-law, friend,or more distant relative, eg. cousin.  However, on enlarging I see that despite the woman centre back's seemingly different colouring, she has a lot of facial similarity. Nowadays many might assume that the littlest boy is a grandchild, but I feel he could very easily be the youngest sibling of the bunch, especially considering there is a daughter aged between him and the older ones.  I had a baby at 42 myself.  I realize this is all just guesswork. What do you think?


I love noticing details.  Note how the three siblings' glasses are all almost exactly the same.  You'd never find that nowadays.  Also, mom's and dad's glasses are the same as each other's but different from their children's.  Mom's dress has an interesting patterned fabric, looks like it may be the same as daughter back left's belt.  


This family looks very interesting.  I wish I knew them!


I didn't note in the file from where or whom I bought this photo.  Some future day I will find it and note it here.
