The library caption has this photo as part of unidentified Family Groups 1850-1920.
I find this one captivating. Note the elder female's bluer than blue eyes; the old gentleman's cape, held together with some type of pin; and what is apparently their daughter or granddaughter adorned in flowers; all in front of what was most likely a family quilt hung as an itinerate photographer's backdrop.
I cannot say exactly why, but this one is another one of my favorites.
