Scheckla family gathering


Scheckla family gathering


Black and white photograph of three generations of the Scheckla family posing in front of their home in Durham on New Year's Day, 1912. Family patriarch Bartholomew Scheckla (sixth man from left) and his wife Tekla (to his left) are standing in the front row. The men all wear suits, ties, and hats. Two men are holding two infants in the back row. Bare trees and a wooden pole rises from behind the men. The home is a two-story residence with a gabled roof. Behind the family, the house's facade shows a roofed porch, two double-pane windows on the second floor and a decorative bargeboard above the windows. The Scheckla family were responsible for clearing the land for farming and roads in the Durham area around the turn of the last century.
