Vollrath Children Pose on Front Porch--1912

Lawrence, Irma, and Carl Vollrath pose on the front porch at 218 South Audubon Road in 1912.  The family had only lived in the house for a few years when this photo was taken.  Charles A. Vollrath and Thermina "Marie" Vollrath had the home constructed in 1909.  This front porch would become the site of countless other family photographs throughout their fifty-year time span of living in the home.  The children are dressed in their finest so perhaps it was a special day.  This historic image is courtesy of Dr. Victor Vollrath, a younger brother to these three siblings.
