Here we see an unidentified family. It is undated, but looks to be the 1940s to us. We have no idea where the photograph was taken. It could have been any where in America. The image looks staged to us, but men did more commonly wear suits in the 1940s than is common today. Its a little hard to see just what the boy is wearing, but it looks to be some sort of shorts set. The girl wears a dress which was still quite common at the time.
