Ed and Laura Wyneken think the picture was taken in the 30’s. Definitely before their wedding, which was in 1931.

F.J. Biltz & family?
The man at the right seems to be F.J. Biltz - cf. other picture of him. Presumably this is him and part of his family in front of his house (perhaps in Concordia, Missouri). The dark haired woman in the middle might be his daughter, Clara. The other adult woman might be one of his adopted daughters, Bertha or Mollie. The two children might be two of his youngest children.

Perhaps the picture was taken after the death of Biltz' wife in 1891 since she does not appear in it..

House of Theodor Brohm in St. Louis, the church in the background is presumably Holy Cross, where he was pastor
Th. Brohm is the man standing next to the gate (can hardly be made out but he seems to look like other pictures of Th. Brohm) next to an unidentified man. Clara Biltz and a sister of hers are in the window.
