    According to Mike Morris (in an e-mail dated 10 Sep 08): "This picture is dated 4 Jul 1915. In the middle is our grandfather, Irving. To his left his father, Joseph, and his mother [Flora Stein] holding Monroe (or is it Irving, Jr.?). His wife, Rose, holding Irv (or Monroe). I am pretty sure the girl is Leone Ettling, Irving's niece (Nettie's daughter)."
