Family History Friday - Aunt Margaret

Today we'll lay Aunt Margaret to rest. She was my father's sister, second child (of five) of my paternal grandparents. In her honor I thought I'd share what I think is one of the earliest photos we have of her.
On the far left of the photo is my grandmother, Margaret Novicky Zoldak. She is holding her second daughter, Margaret, (my dearly departed aunt) on her lap. Standing next to her is her cousin Justine (with crossed arms), then seated is Justine's mother, Julia Kranjnik Zoldak, and on her lap is Julia's third daughter, Josephine. Next to her is Julia's second daughter, JoAnne. The boys are cousins on my grandmother's side with my grandmother's sister Sophie standing behind them. The man standing in the back on the left is not a relative. Aunt Lill thinks he might have been Aunt Susan's boyfriend at the time. We believe the photo was taken in the summer of 1929 at Euclid Beach Park.
