Sam and Reil Walker in Their Backyard
My mother cherished this photograph as it was one of only several pictures she had of her father and stepmother, Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" and Jennie "Reil" (Hannah) Walker together, and the only one taken in color. Taken in Morning Sun, Iowa, Sam is holding a sunflower in his hand, and it is not clear to me if the flower bed near them is of roses or large impatiens. Roses would have seemed more likely as I remember the flora of the day. The photo was developed in November 1955, so it probably was taken in the summer of that year. Sam died in 1957, and Reil died in 1958. This so resembles another photograph (in which Sam is holding a sunflower) that was taken by Robert Charles "Bob" Walker, I imagine this was also taken by him.
