I only just now noticed what the kids are standing in front of here. I was staring harder than usual trying to see if I could figure out who was who in the photo. It isn't particularly well-focused.

And then all those cobs started distracting me.

Pearl, Ruth, Eugene, May

FWIW, my grandmother (the nutty one) is the bottom right. Her brother Eugene is sitting next to her -- he died in 1920. Standing are Pearl and Ruth (left and right). The two oldest boys are not in the picture, probably because Elmer had already run off to participate in The Great War (he was too young, but that did not stop him; the US Army wouldn't take him, but the Australians would). I don't know where Iven was. Possibly taking the picture?

It's actually not a bad background -- textured but no surprises (no branches to come out of people's heads, etc.). B. and I were photographed in front of a woodpile for our wedding picture.

still seems odd to me, but a fair assessment
I've had enough pictures taken in front of brick walls to understand the thinking.
