Note from submitter Janet Flynn,  Maybe someone out there can identify some of these "kids". My uncle, Harvey Schneider, is third from the right in the front row. He was born in 1907. I don't know at what age the E&R confirmed kids, so someone who does can do the math. Perhaps 1917-1920?  The date on the envelope was 1919. 


Dorothy (Pohlmann) Noelken has been able to date this picture as well as give name to those in it.  Thank you Dorothy.
