Christmas in Buffalo, NY. 1917. The year is a guesstimate based on the birth dates of Hermann (1912, on the left) and Johanna (1911). They are enjoying their new toys under the tree lit with actual candles.
In additional to the traditional train by the tree I find most fascinating the horse-drawn milk delivery wagon. This image doesn't show it well but the horse is mounted on a wheeled platform for smoother playtime.
