Kaye hopes someone will recognize the people in this photograph. Any ideas?

Kaye's father, George Baker, is kneeling on the front row next to the little girl.  Her mother, Ruth Baker, is behind and to the right.  T.C. Baker is next to her.  Kaye believes the man on the back left is her grandfather, Roy Baker.  The photo was taken at Cloudland at a family reunion.

Mrs. Ethel Clarkson was Kaye's grandmother and owned a house on South Commerce Street next door to the Garretts.  According to Kaye, Mrs. Clarkson cut her yard with an old-fashioned manual mower and walked to church on Sundays and Wednesdays.  She also operated a boarding house at this location for many years.  This photograph was taken in August 1957.
