The Offenbach Bank building in 1886,
(left to right) Bertha in window (daughter of Hermann, one of the 15 sons, b. 1877), Josephine Steinhardt Merzbach (b. 1851, wife of Hermann), Lisbeth (daughter of Hermann, b. 1883), grandmother Steinhardt (mother of Josephine), Netty (sister of Josephine), Rudolf in window (son of Hermann, b. 1881, my grandfather), Wilhelm with bowler hat (son of Hermann, b. 1873). Notice the words chalked on the building above the head of grandmother Steinhardt - something like "bitte die ??? nicht zu nutzen" (not quite sure if I am reading it correctly).
