My great-grandfather was an amatuer photographer in the 1910s. He took these photos of his family before he left them for the bottle during the Great Depression. The hat is his; the girl staring out accusingly from the center photo is my grandmother.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed.
