(Not-So-) Wordless Wednesday: Charles Guokas Jr. and III, c.1927

My maternal grandfather, Charles Peter Guokas Jr. (1903-1967) with firstborn Charles Guokas III (1927-1999), probably late 1927 (Charles III was born in February) or early 1928 (my mother was born in October of that year) in Houston, Texas.  This could be outside 2215 Shearn (where the 1928 and 1929 city directories indicate they were living, while Charles Jr. worked as a "coll[ecto]r"? for Pittsburg Water Heater Company), or outside 1717 Shearn (where my great-grandparents, Charles Sr. & Elizabeth Guokas, lived), or outside 212 North York (where the 1927 city directory indicates they were living, while Charles Jr. worked as a checker for Ford Motor Company).   I think it might be 1717 Shearn and 1928, because the woman on the right looks like Charles Jr.'s sister Eva Louise Guokas Scott (1907-1979).  She and her husband Otis Henry Scott (1907-1979) were living at that address with their son Otis Henry Scott Jr. (1925-2011) in 1928 and 1929.
