According to genealogy website Mocavo, A “Louis Baunach was born on September 10, 1879 and died on February, 1969 at the age of 90…. Louis’s last known place of residence was Richmond Hill, Queens County, New York.” I am not certain that this is the same Louis Baunach as in this image, which Vincenzo and I bought in a second-hand story in Fishs Eddy, NY almost two decades ago. It is also unclear as to whether or not these images were taken in Queens. Feel free to help solve this mystery.

    From the way the women are dressed these pictures look to be from no later than the early 20th Century. Given that time frame, from the close-up picture it’s fairly apparent that only one of the four men might have been young enough for an 1890 birth date to make sense, and even that’s a stretch. I suspect that Louis Baunach is not pictured.

      If 1879 was Baunach’s birthdate, the guy on the far right looks as if he could be as young as 25, which would date the picture 1904 if this really is the same Louis Baunach.

        Ah, I misread the original post and thought that Louis had been born in 1890, in fact he lived until age 90.

          Hoping a family member checks in. Let me know if you find anything!
