"I believe the pictures were taken at the home of Grace Schlador in Los  Angeles around 1910. Along with Nannie and Carrie Coor-Pender Young,  The woman in the middle is my great grandmother Pearl Amelia Taylor  Coor-Pender, widow of Percy Coor-Pender. I am not positive of the  identity of the child, but I believe him to be Warren J Smith son of  Amelia Schlador Smith who was Grace Taylor Schlador's daughter."
