People pose with dogs at the Silverthorn's house on Main Street

Well-dressed young women and one young man pose with dogs on the covered front porch of Judge Marshall and Agnes (Ralston) Silverthorn's house on Main Street in Breckenridge, Colorado. Circa 1910s. The two women sitting on the porch's lower steps may be the Silverthorn's granddaughters, Agnes Eleanor Finding (left, in a contrasting vertical stripe dress and cradling a small dog) and her sister Charline Antoinette (right, wearing a dark dress with white paneled front and a large brimmed hat with white plumes). Between them, sitting on the top step, is a girl holding a puppy on her lap and a large dog. Another woman sits on a chair by the front door, her gloved hands folded across her lap. A bicycle leans against a chair in the lawn.
