I have only ever owned two of these photographs that show multiple generations of veterans. This cabinet card has a Mack and Bro./Pottsville PA. imprint on it. I cannot tell the medal that the WW1 vet is wearing Looks like a Pa. state medal but there is no federal Victory medal shown.

This is the second photograph in my collection showing a multigenerational group of veterans. This one puzzles me a bit. It has a handwritten note on the reverse of Burlington Iowa and the original image shows clearly a 7th Division patch on the WW1 soldier's shoulder. The other two are a bit of a puzzle as to the relationship to the first. I first thought grandfather, father and son but the man in the five button tunic seems to be the youngest of them all. The older man in the center wears Colonel's eagles on his shoulder straps.

Any thoughts about this one.

Little late to this one, but great photos. The second pic is indeed a little strange-would love to know the answer......... Thanks for posting
