This photograph came to me a few years ago from Scotland (Clydebank, near Glasgow). The print is mounted on stiff paper, which has nothing written or stamped on it to identify the group, the location or the photographer.
Since all the members of the group are adults, I don’t think this is an extended family, although the older woman in the center could certainly be a family matriarch. Everyone appears to be dressed in black. While most of the facial expressions are rather stern, one woman is smiling, perhaps despite herself.
Why do you think these people were together?
