1947 Walker Family Reunion – Antelope Creek Pet Milk Photograph

Because the group photograph for the 1947 Walker Reunion (Pet Milk) was large and the participants gathered around the trailer in irregular rows it seems more practical to divide the photo into three parts and then identify individuals from left to right. There are 15 persons in Part 1, 26 in Part 2, and 29 in Part 3 for a total of 70 persons.
