Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo Co, California
The lady at left is my gr-grandmother Sarah "Sallie" CUPP, 86.
Standing is her granddaughter, Clara "Etta" (Cupp) Tiete, 40.
The little girl is Etta's granddaughter, Dora Fay Wickham, 3 1/2.
At the time this was taken, Dora's parents lived in San Luis
Obispo County, Etta in Fresno, and Grandma Sallie in Galt
near Sacramento. So this wasn't so much as "outing" as a
gathering of generations while Sallie could still travel.
In fact, the back of the next photo (same day, Morro Bay)
calls it a "5-generation pic", but not in the usual way...
(l-r, adults) Etta's dau Velma Fay (Brown) Wickham
holding 14-mo-old son Edwin William Wickham;
"Grandma Sallie"; Etta; Sallie's dau Josie (Cupp) Morris.
In front of Velma is her other son, Arthur Stephen
Wickham, 5 1/2, and at his left is little Dora.
Were this a true 5-gen pic, it would include Etta's dad,
Albert Isaac "Bert" Cupp, or her mother, Jennie May
(Morris) Cupp-Brown. But Jennie had died in 1915,
and Etta had little contact with her father, so
his sister Josie represented their generation.
Apologies for the quality of the photos.
Both originals were severely under-exposed.
