Here’s a photograph in which the individuals are identified: Jack Chernoff and Nick Laktin. (I assume that Jack is on the left, while Nick stands on the right.) The handwriting is that of my father-in-law Bill, in whose collection I found this photo. Despite their names, my husband doesn’t know who they are or how they might be connected to his father’s or his mother’s family. (Since Bill wrote the names on the back of the photo, he must have known Jack and Nick.) The men pose in front of what appears to be a wood cabin, possibly at a camp or by a lake. I estimate that the photo was taken in the 1940s or 1950s, in Canada, likely in Saskatchewan or British Columbia.
