This is a photo of, E.M. Poulton (Center - old man), his sons (in back), daughter (right), daughter in law (left), and grandkids (2 children). This was taken on August 15, 1911 (100th aniversary was last month)! This was the day of Mary Jane Poulton's (E.M.'s wife) funeral. The reason I posted this is because the name on the stamp spot is not AZO. It appears to be ARTURA, or something like that. Can anyone tell me why this has a different photographer? Maybe it was just a local photographer. PLEASE leave thoughts below...

    Was this likely taken in a field or is that a backdrop?

    AZO and ARTURA are not photographers, it is the manufacturer of the photographic paper used to print these post cards.

    ARTURA is the same era as most of the AZO post cards. There are many other names found on the stamp boxes.

    They lived in Westerville, WV then moved to New Straitsville, OH/ New Lexington, OH/ Zanesville, OH area, so just south east of Columbus, yes!! Was this taken in a studio?

    No it looks like an outdoor shot.

    I was going to track down the Civil War vet in the photograph and after looking at your other items realize that you already have his information.

    Poor memory on my part!
