Picnic With The Relatives

John B. Capewell came from a large familiy so I have a number of glass negatives in the Capewell Collection with a number of what I’m guessing are cousins, aunts, uncles and such.

This shot appears to have been made a little later than a lot of the shots I’ve posted recently. Some of the familiar faces look a little older.

Ella and John Capewell are standing in the back row. It looks to be their sons beneath them in the middle row. My guess is John, Jr is on the left and Henry O is to the right of his brother.

I noticed that the boys looked older, and I wondered where all of the men-folk had gone. There are plenty of wives and children and a few older men, but where are the husbands? Was this during World War I, perhaps?

Here is a shot of the entire negative.

As with all of the photographs in the Capewell Collection, I placed the 5″ x 7″ glass negative on a lightbox and shot them with a digital camera locked down on a tripod. The “processing” was done digitally on a Mac using Adobe Photoshop.
