What cute kids!  I love their pose right down to their shoes!
Cyko postcards like this were used from 1904 to 1920. This photo was most likely taken in 1911.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)
Update from Iggy:
Jay Berwyn St John (3 Jan 1909 in Illinois - 4 Apr 1973 in Kankakee, Illinois) He married Mary B Gordon on 25 Oct 1931. I don't know if he had any children.

Zeta Fern St John (18 Sep 1906 in Illinois - 18 Feb 1948 in Los Angeles), at the age of 19, married Fred G Gereaux on 7 Nov 1925 in Doland (near Richfield), Spink County, South Dakota. She had (in 1940) children named Jay age 13, Betty 10, David 8, Richard 6 and Jean Gereaux 2.

The St John family (parents Edward and Bessie) lived in Belle Plaine, Spink County, South Dakota which is about 150 miles north west of Sioux Falls. They later moved (back?) to Kankakee, Illinois

  3. Those button shoes were no fun. The button hook used to fasten them sometimes twisted a little skin and I think I pretended it hurt more than it really did. My poor mom!
