    There are two inscriptions on the reverse. One, probably by Eola, is written directly on the mat board on which the photo is mounted. The other, by Jean Vitt Winograd, is on a label glued to the mat. The first reads, "Home of Hiram Frost. Brockway, Pa. Built by himself. Rebuilt over later by E. G. Frost who bought it from the Heirs." The one in Jean Vitt's hand reads, "It was a real split-level as you had to go upstairs to go out the back door. Downstairs (as I remember it) was only one room - the kitchen with a big wood stove, the front porch was closed in to make another room later. Upstairs were four small rooms & a hall. Bryant Lane, Brockway Pa."

    Evelyn has identified several of the people in this photo. See locator. Can anyone identify others?

    In the right hand part of the mat in the original is the pencil notation "? John W. Frost & wife" with an arrow seemingly pointing to the young man on the end of the second row. Presumably these would be John Wilson Frost and his wife Sarah Jane Powell. Below that is the notation "next to wife ist Coral". That would be Coral E. Frost. Below that there is a trace of additional pencil notation, but it has been erased except for a few letters.

    In the bottom margin is the pencil notation, "3rd row boy, Lizzie, Eola, Mary, Nan, Father, Wilson, Mother,". That would be Elizabeth Ada, Eola Gertriude, Mary, Annis, William Henry, Halsey Wilson, and Annis Powell Frost.

    Since this photo isn't labeled, the identification can't be definitive, and unfortunately, he moved so his image is blurred. Even so, a careful comparison with the other tintype we have of them is suggestive. This photo came from the collection that had been through the fire at the Lesch's.
