The little girl by the fence was my mother's cousin, Golda Yingling, whose family owned a grist mill near this beautiful small house (check the scrollwork above each window as well as the two porch roofs' embellishments), in Sproul, Pa., north of Bedford.
The photo was taken before 1920 but long enough after the 1903 debut of the Teddy Bear, one of which is enjoying the view with Golda (Aunt Goldie to me) of what became U.S. Route 220. Her name there is in my Mom's handwriting.
