(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 108: San Diego Carringers

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

I managed to scan about 100 family photographs in the Scanfest in January, and have converted the scanned TIF files to smaller JPGs, cropped and rotated as best I can. Many of these were "new" to my digital photograph collection.

Here is a photograph from the Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

My grandfather's writing on the back of this photograph says it was taken in 1939. Pictured here are (from the left):

* Harvey Edgar Carringer (1852-1946); brother of Henry Austin Carringer; never married, resided in San Diego
* Della (Smith) Carringer (1862-1944), wife of Henry Austin Carringer, mother of Lyle Carringer
* Henry Austin Carringer (1853-1946), husband of Della Smith, father of Lyle Carringer
* Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976), son of Henry Austin and Della (Smith) Carringer - my maternal grandfather.

I am unsure of the setting of this photograph. It looks like a back or side yard. My best guess is that this was taken in the back yard of the Lyle Carringer home at 2130 Fern Street in San Diego.
