We note an unidentified family duting the 1920s in a village near Keuruu (central Finland). It shows a grandmother with her many grandchildren. It seems that the two younger boys are wearing jackets without any shirt. That seems rather unusual. We suspect that their mothers told them to put on the jackets for the photograph. The younger boy seems to be wearing a tunic. That was a style that began going out of style after World war I.
A reader asks, "Is the boy on the right wearing strap shoes? How old would you guess he was?"
Yes he is, although we see them more atssummer sandals, albeit a children's style. Rather unusual for a boy in long pants. He looks to be 16-17 years old to us.
