This is my grt. grandfather, James Cromarty Taylor. I am guessing this was taken around 1950, don't know the location of the beach or who the little girl is. Maybe a niece? He was in his nineties when he died in 1957.

Comments:
JCT lived in Massachusetts in 1950, so this pic is of a later date. He passed away in Widewall, in February 1957.
