In researching my father's biological side of the family, I came across this gem of a photo on a website for a Mendocino museum! My great-grandfather's brother, Gustaf Kujala, seated right.
Description: Four men posing in a studio photograph with beer bottles and glasses. Only two are identified on the right as Alex Sissala (standing) and Gus Kujala (seated).
Caption: Men drinking beer.
