We wrap up Old Family Photo week here at OPOD today with these pictures. The picture above was submitted by Duene R. This is the information she sent along with the Photo:
"This photo was taken in Chicago in 1929. This is the Marlatt Brothers baseball team, from Hawk Springs, Wyoming. They were in Chicago to play in the championship game for brothers baseball. The uniforms they are wearing were from the Chicago White Sox.
All of the men on the team were brothers, except two, who were nephews. My grandfather is standing, far left, and my father is standing far right.
There were also seven sisters in the family, who stayed at home in Wyoming."
In addition, I wanted to share this photo, which was submitted by Sandy B.
"This photo of my husband’s relatives was taken in Oracle, Arizona in 1907 as they traveled out west from Dayton, Ohio. They are the Landis family who owned a tobacco company which was destroyed in the Great Dayton flood of 1913.
They traveled out west In part to see if the western air would help Herman who suffered with TB. We were told they traveled by “auto.” But, now wonder how that could be possible in an automobile such as this (although the gateway to the west, old National route 40, is on the outskirts of Dayton.) The man driving the auto is a “chaperone” as written on the back of the photo.
Another interesting tidbit: the Landis’s were neighbors of Orville and Wilber Wright."
