Found at a central Texas antique store. The photo shows four Finnish children. From left to right: Olli (Olavi) - age 6, baby Ilmo- age 9 months?, Tarmo? - age 5, Marja - age 8. There are some other words written on the back that I can't quite make out - possibly the family name? I uploaded a scan of the back separately in case someone else wants to try to read it.
Found at a central Texas antique store. The original photo is badly scratched. I managed to clone out most of the damage except for some fine lines around his nose and upper lip. The back of the photo has the name "Kaarlo Hammar" written on it. The front has the name "Kaarlo Terhi" and in English "brother of Sigrid" or "Sigurd".
