Horstman family group photo - Possibly taken at the passing of August Frederick Horstman in 1920? This photo seems to be taken circa 1928 based on the appearance of Carl Edgar Horstman (b 1915) in similar photos. I do not show any immediate family members passing in the 1928 time frame.

Otto and Gladys spent their summers in San Diego, California in the 1970’s. Leonard and Violet Horstman use to drive down from LA to visit. Gordon and Eleanor went with Len and Violet Horstman to visit once while they were in Calif visiting. Roger and Lynn also went with Len and Vi one time. Otto and Gladys always stayed in a hotel that was right on the beach (La Jolla?)
