(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 138: Betty and her Grandparents

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.

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

This photograph from (approximately) early 1920 shows my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer, as a baby with her three living grandparents and only living great-grandparent. 

Pictured, from the left, are:  Georgianna (Kemp) Auble (mother of Emily (Auble) Carringer); Henry Austin Carringer (father of Lyle L. Carringer); Betty, held by Austin; Della (Smith) Carringer (wife of Austin, mother of Lyle), and Abigail (Vaux) Smith, mother of Della. 

It's too bad that Betty's parents, Lyle L. and Emily (Auble) Carringer, are not in the picture also.  My guess is that Lyle was taking the picture.

I'm not sure of the setting of this picture - it may be at the Lyle Carringer home at 2054 Harrison Street in San Diego, or it may be at the Austin Carringer home at 2105 30th Street in San Diego.
