This is one of my favorite photos, although everyone looks so serious. I am sure if my grandmother was still alive, she could tell me much more about the photo.

I got the negative from my father, it is about 3″ x 5″. It was scanned on an Epsom Perfection 1260. I Scanned it in parts and stitched it together using Adobe Photoshop. (Stitching a Panorama in Adobe Photoshop.) Lastly I adjusted and restored the photo. (Photo restoration.)

I also got a piece of the photo from my father, which confirmed which was the right side and the color of the original.
