Family Portrait - All the Family - Wordless Wednesday

This family portrait, dogs and all, is a favourite among my stray photograph collection. Although it's clearly a posed photograph, everyone looks quite natural, even great grandmother (?) who might be almost asleep.

There's no identifying information with this image. "3" and "40" are the number plates on the building (2 plates for "40"). No men - was 'Papa' far away, I wonder, or no longer there?

Someone treasured this; it was hung up as there's a pin hole at the top of the mat. (I cropped part of the mat to make the file smaller. It's about twice as wide as what you see.)

Posted for Wordless Wednesday, on Thursday. I didn't get near enough done yesterday, so today, Thursday, is my Wednesday. (I will catch up, I will catch up, I will ....)

Not meaning to be morbid, but knowing the subject of many old photos, is grandma possibly resting in peace?

Well, it is possible. But I don't think so. They are informally grouped for one thing.
