Vintage photos of:
My father and his Aunt Maude taken in Hall, New York, 1925. Notice the shadow of the person taking the photo. And the lady with the hat. Could have been my grandmother and grandfather Mr. and Mrs. John Hedge. They were of English descent, came to the U.S. around 1913 aboard the Mauretania through Ellis Island from Knapton and Walsham.
