Summer Portrait on the Porch

Here are some members of my Father's side of the family:

Palanga, Lithuania, about 1920. This photo features my paternal Grandfather, Vytautas (far left, with legs crossed and holding a cigarette), and his extended family.

I can't yet identify many of these people, but I would like to get to know the woman sitting to my Grandfather's left. She looks relaxed and thoughtful. When I was little, I resembled the girl who's standing, holding a book.

Notice the maid, who is lurking in the background on the porch. She is the one wearing an apron.

Correct, David.
