Their faces have been enlarged at the bottom of the page for your convenience..

We are estimating that these photos were taken sometime in the 1930's - 1940's based on the dress of the era.

There was no date found on the photographs... the name of the photographer Bob Banks was stamped on the reverse side of this photo.
