Photo: Andrew Jerome and Jim Smith Families (Early 1900)

A kind lady contacted me about a picture she found in a California antique mall.  Fortunately, she found my website about the Jerome Family and offered me the picture at her cost in order to get it back to the family.  The photo is in excellent condition.  What a find.  Judging by the size of my Uncle Julius (boy in the picture), I believe the picture was taken about 1904-5 near Hallock MN.  Annotations on the back of the picture, made by a descendant of Jim Smith and Andre Jerome, are included without any editing.
