One last auto photo for this post shows Charlie's in laws, or Esther's parents, Dietrick and Louisa Wetchen coming or going in their automobile. Aunt Marie's writing on the top; they lived in the city--La Crosse and had come out to the farm to visit Esther and the girls. Guessing again that this is in the 1920's but no later than 1925 because Dietrick died August 1925. None of the color selections that abound now for vehicles were available back then and really the designs show little variation, although the pair of greats are going top down!
