I purchased the subject undated RPPC (Real Photo Post Card) depicting an older man standing behind a younger woman who is seated and holding an infant on her lap. There are two younger men standing to either side.
This AZO type RPPC (not postally used), taken by Imperial Studio, San Francisco, CA, is identified on the back:
"Mrs. S. G. Scharf
73 Surrey St.
I found the family listed in the 1920 Census data for San Francisco, CA, shown residing at 73 Surrey St. This record is difficult to read, especially the age of the head of houshold, Samuel G. Scharf, who was born in MD (both his parents were born in UT). He was employed as a ship yard watchman. His wife, Lena A., was born in CA about 1890. I found a precise birth date for her, 9 Mar 1890, in the California Death Index, which shows that she died in Napa Co. on 24 Jan 1964. Her maiden name was Drumm. When the family was enumerated by the Census taker in 1920, the couple had two children, Alice, age 2-4/12 years, and Sylvia M., age 9/12 year. The 1930 census data lists Lena, then 40 years old, as a widow, residing on Grove St. in San Francisco, with daughter Alice G., age 12; daughter Sylvia M., age 10; son Ransome S. J., age 9; and daughter Lucille D., age 4.
