Easter 1925 in Lockport, New York

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!  I thought I’d share an Easter-related photo today.

This picture was taken on Easter 1925 at the Clinton Street United Methodist Church in Lockport, NY.

The minister (standing to the right) is my husband’s great-grandfather, Nicholas Van Cossaboon.

The other people in the picture are as follows:
