Liederkranz Ladies at Mrs. Janke's Bay House
I think these ladies are some of the members of the Ladies Auxiliary group at the weekend Galveston Bay home of Mrs. Janke - If this isn't the wife of Constantine
Janke I don't know - possibly his daughter-in-law?? I would date this some time between 1947 and 1952, give or take a year or two. - Peter
