One of My Favorite Photos: Weekly Prompt #1

I like this picture of the "Becker Band", which includes several of my granduncles and grandaunts. I didn't know them personally so I feel fortunate that a cousin has shared this picture with me. It was probably taken around 1910 in Kansas.
The women left to right are Edna Becker, friend Deborah Sutton, Mabel Becker and Esta Becker. The men from left to right at Bert Becker, Bill Lillich (future husband of Mabel Becker) and Lew Becker. The Becker siblings' sister Nannie was my maternal grandmother. I wish I could have heard them play and sing! Posted by Picasa

Hi Becky ~
Great picture! Coupled with the wonderful photos your Dad posted I can see you are quite the musical family :-)

I love this picture, Becky! What a treasure. So is that a violin, a guitar, and a banjo? Wouldn't you have loved to have your grandmother in the picture, as well?

Your picture reminds me of those of the Von Trapp family singers....This is wonderful! I can hear the music! Thanks for sharing.

I can see why this is a favorite! As a guitar picker and singer in a bluegrass group, I know music is important to families. That's how my husband and I met. And our two children play, too.
