I've "rescued" two old photographs of Isabel and Eloise OGLESBEE which were taken at the Sohreick's Studio in Dayton, OH. The photographs are framed together in a decorative tin frame with an inscription on the back "To Lucy, love and best wishes" and the girls names. I would guess that the girls are infant to about 6 years old in the photographs. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding the two girls:

Isabel Robinson OGLESBEE was b. 4 Oct 1902 in Ohio to parents Edward Elmer OGLESBEE (b. 4 Aug 1870 in Greene Co. OH-d. 2 Sept 1947 in Los Angeles Co., CA) and Gertrude Luree ROBINSON (b. 13 Aug 1873 in Indiana-d. 3 Jan 1959 in Los Angeles Co., CA). Isabel married Paul R. KEMP (b. abt 1898 in Ohio) in 1928 and she died in Santa Barbara Co. CA on 19 Oct 1990.

Eloise V. OGLESBEE was b. 29 Dec 1909 in Dayton, OH to the same parents and married Hugh R. GROFF (b. 5 Nov 1907 in Piedmont, SD) on 11 Jul 1935 in Los Angeles, CA. Eloise d. 24 Nov 1976 in Santa Barbara, CA and is buried in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, CA.
