This is a picture of my father-in-laws family. This was taken in Salem/Sugar City, Idaho about 1930. My father-in-law was here and saw this picture. He said he remembers taken this picture like it was yesterday. He also said those striped overalls were the dress-up, going to town clothes. Those were real fancy clothes back then.
