Old Photo

 My sister sent me the most AWESOME photo yesterday!
I can surely guess that it is from late Spring 1922, and probably where it was taken (Ohio).  I have no certainty who the 2 gentlemen on the left are.  I can guess about the guy on the right.  Why?

Because the baby being held is my Dad!

I'll assume the guy holding my dad is my paternal grandfather.  I'll make a logical guess that the 2 gentlemen on the left are my 2 paternal great-grandfathers.

WOW!

I love old photos and yours is particularly special since it's your own family.

I always wonder, looking at early photographs, if those in the images were happy or at least content. I imagine most had very difficult lives and of course the women would have had fewer options than we do today. It's very easy to get "lost" in those old photos!

I love seeing old family pictures of people's family that I know, even if it is in a cyber way!

I'd say those other guys might be of the Uncle variety.

This is quite the picture to have Mark! What a treasure. I know you are not a church going man yourself but I'm wondering if it might be a baptismal gown your infant dad is wearing and that is why all the generations are gathered that day. I also notice they all have the same nose!!
