Samoa Cookhouse, c. 1906

Yes, this is just a great photo,  but are those dunes reflected in the window panes behind the subjects? I believe the Inside Sports Gym is located there now…?

The three on the left have such similar hair I’d guess this is a family (and I think the guy on the right has a proud-dad look).

On the back of the photo it says, “Return to E. McCormick Rio Dell” –I’m guessing this refers to Evelyn McCormick, a well known local historian.
