Gorgeous

Just wanted to echo the fact that this family is absolutely beautiful.

They really are

A beautiful looking family. I wonder if the "baby" is still around, or maybe the parents as well. Great shot.

Talcum powder!

I couldn't figure out what the can in the mother's lap was, until a movie I just happened to have on, "Penny Serenade" (1941), showed Edgar Buchanan (Uncle Joe on "Petticoat Junction") dressing a baby after a bath and asking for a can of talcum powder! This was a beautiful family and I hope their situation soon improved.
