Grandma's Photo Album Page 77 - Snyders and an unknown baby


(Left) I don't know who this baby is.  I don't recognize the setting.  The photo looks like it might be a 1920s vintage.

(Center)  On the left is Myrtle Stewart Snyder (1897-1972), wife of William Eugene Snyder, my grandfather's brother.  On the right is my grandmother, Nora Bessie McNeil Snyder (1900-1992).

They are standing on the front porch of a house on Devonshire Street in Winston-Salem, N.C.  It's hard to tell which house because the two brothers (Will and my grandfather) bought identical houses next door to each other! 

The photo must have been taken between my grandparents' marriage on April 16, 1919, and the day they sold the house, April 30, 1924.

(Right) My aunt Mozelle (living).
