About the label:
This photo features Harriet Allen (McKinley), Jim's Grandmother and Elaina's Great Grandmother. The scene dates back more than 90 years to the spring of 1921. It was taken in Smith’s Ferry, Idaho, on the North Fork of the Payette River near McCall. It was here that Mrs. Allen and her newlywed husband settled into their first home together after World War I.
"Number One" is displayed on the label as an exact scan of Mrs. Allen's handwriting, precisely as it can be found on the back of the original photograph. It is believed that this photo, along with several others, was sent to her parents inside a letter sharing news of this joyful new beginning. Numbering the photos made it easier to properly reference them in correspondence.
