  I do too though I must admit I'm fonder of the sideways glance she is giving to her mother in law you can see if you click for the full size.

Great photo. To have one with a large group of the family together is awesome.
And I would make sure you have it labeled so later family members know who they are.
Yes. You need to get that copied so you can pass it on before it falls apart.

It sure looks like one but the side windows are different than in the pics I can find of one. The would have been in the 30's before WWII. For some reason he never talked about this part of his Navy career. I have his flight log book and the entries abruptly so I wonder if he washed out? He became a radar officer after that and ended up on an escort carrier in WWII.

To be honest, I'm guessing at the age. She left me with a lot of photos explaining on the back what was going on. This one was blank.
She was always self conscience about her "big" ears. She was covering them up back then.

 Well I am actually there to her immediate left but I'm being almost totally obscured by the Michigan player who really should have been standing farther back as the article was about the guy taking the shot (Brian Evans). I don't remember Mr. Evans having any hygiene issues though I'm not sure about the Michigan players.
