Toners, I see a cool dad and a happy family, and a great picnic that I'm sorry I missed.

Late 19th century. of course this is a setup photo as no handheld cameras existed. Two families possibly brothers. Looks like out west. The man in the middle is holding a single-shot rifle of the buffalo gun type. Possibly a Remington or Ballard. Just doesn't look like a Sharps. They are farmers that also hunt to subsist. I would say your great-granparents.

Also from the chair and towel one of the men has gotten a shave or haircut possiblty both. This is on a Sunday as they are dressed for Church. It is on a hillside as the small trees are straight up. Noontime as the shadows are straight down. Your Great or great-great Grandparents.

This is a personal favorite. I am fascinated with early america and life on the frontier. I think the title is misleading. i don't see a picnic but a bath and shave day. The chairs pots and tubs suggest boiling water for a baby bath and the chairs just suggest a shave. I have familty pics that show the same thing and I just get this feeling. Also the man with the rifle is quite proud of it.

We're all going to have to give up in the face of our super-observor, Rick. Incredible.

The period is perhaps between 1900 and 1910 based on the men's hats, The clothes are store purchased, also suggesting early 1900's. These were good times for the two families. Based on the women's clothes, the two families were in good economic times. To me, the image portrays the message, That life is good.

I suspect, one of the couples is Toners' grandparents.

On the last day of this challenge, it would be nice if authors of the posts would tell us about the photo(s) they posted.

I think you'll find that to be the babies highchair, the folded material was used to tie the baby in the chair.
