Hi Zachary -
If you have an original of this photo with documentation, there are literally 1000s of people who would be eternally grateful if you could share that information. If it's convenient for you, please contact the Denver Public Library Western History staff and they will be delighted to correct the information on the photo after looking at your evidence. Thanks!

Is it possible to use this image "A Pioneer Family" on the cover of a booklet I am writing for the Mendon/Honeoye Falls Library? Thanks.

For classroom use, how do I cite this photo?

Hi Laura,

The proper citation is: Denver Public Library Special Collections, X-11929.

The string of numbers is the photo's call number. Hope this helps!
