Transcription"Family Affair - All members of the Ness family pitch in to feed the triplets in the late afternoon. Velma sits in a rocking chair while feeding Renee and Mr. and Mrs. Ness each take one of the boys. Lloyd helps out wherever he can. The 'feeding by piece work' cuts down feeding time considerably." - caption with similar image published in The Fargo Forum, October 2, 1955, p. B-10.
