Old Family Photograph

I've posted a few pictures of this family before, I saw a copy of this picture from a newspaper years ago.  I looked and looked for a original copy of the picture.  Today one of my wonderful cousin Judy who also does genealogy, made my day and sent it to me.  It's still quite old, I worked on it some, trying to lighten it up some.  I always heard they had just gone to church and their horse and buggy was behind them in the picture.  Apparently though they had gone to the fair and got this picture taken. Wonder if they all fit on the horse and buggy?

Great picture, your group looks about as solemn as my group does today LOL.
I wouldn't think all them could get in one buggy. Maybe the children and younger people took turns walking and riding.  That buggy doesn't look very big. Helen

Yep that's a mighty big family gathering after church, but I bet they had a couple of buggies.

Oh I love old photos!  A hundred years ago getting your photo taken was a rare event taken quite seriously, and in every photo I've ever seen it shows in their faces.  But my, what a big family!  I would guess they had several buggys.
