    I think these is 1920s -early 30s from the "pot" hat and the coat. I just love 2. the grandfather--as much as the baby, and the mother, aunt or daughter--is very sweet. They are all experiencing a "Big Day" in their lives--and I hope it was wonderful!!
    These iare just an everyday photos of the times, probably developed at the drug store. Not postcards--Nothing on the back.

    ADDED! Just got 2 more-- For sure Photo 3 is the same old fellow with another grand-baby---and maybe his brother in the rubble of an earthquake-Now in first position.-All same family anyway!

      This is going to be one of my favorites...it is the old man. With his high collar and vest now really, would he make a great character actor, or what!! I'd love to sit and have long talks with him about his youth. I'd sit right on his lap! (I am little)

      Photo 3 looks as if there had been an earthquake. What do you think---All three photos ARE from same family.

      The thin plate-glass on the store window behind him is still mostly intact with all other windows intact. Not sure it was a quake. Why would one building become totally destroyed, and none of the others exhibit a crack? My guess is, one was demolished or collapsed due to things like fire, sinking ground, or an explosion. I'd say flooding, but I see no flood damage.
