    This is very similar to the earlier "Mormons Living in Lumber Yard, El Paso", from the 1912-1913 part of the Bain news stream. In fact, those look to be the same hats hanging on the wooden beams, so it’s likely this was taken at the same time. From the annotations to the other picture, it’s (remotely) possible that Mitt Romney’s father is one of the children. Mormons living in lumber yard - El Paso  (LOC)
