Laughing and crying babies (at same time) picture

This picture was taken in the 1950's - the kids/children laughing and crying are my cousin (Cindy Lewis Sachdeva) and me (Andrew Murray Howe V) after I had just pinched her on her birthday (I am laughing). My father took it with a Graflex press camera made in 1919 with a Carl Zeiss lens (I still have the camera). All of our childhood pictures taken by him were the same quality, and a picture of my sister from the same time, from the same camera taken by him was a full page in the May 11 1959 issue of Life Magazine. He died when I was in early grade school. This picture is a familiy treasure - when people come to my house and see it on our credenza they assume it is a Hallmark card! It was taken in Cincinnati, Ohio (we grew up in Wyoming, a small town on the north side of Cincinnati).
