all pictures made in Cincinnati, OH except the one on the far right, which was from a lady who found some old pictures. One with the name of Bob Payne on the back. I noticed that the buttons on the jacket were correct so the picture is facing right. It does bear a likeness to Robert W. Payne as well as the other Payne's but until I find more proof will have to think it may not be. Further down is a picture of Robert W. Payne and his granddaughter Estelle and either Helen or Ethel. More of those pictures can be located HERE
