Hazel, Jerry and Jim
Scanned from an old 616 negative, this photo shows a young Hazel Rattenne doting over her latest child. According to Mike Rattenne III, "The little girl kneeling is got to be Jerry; she looks to be 4 or maybe 5. There was only a year and a half between Jean and I; so the little baby has to be Jim." 

If that's so then this photo was taken in 1933 or early 1934, probably in Sioux City, IA. Jim was born on July 6, 1933 and in this photo the baby does not look to be more than six to nine months old.
