My grandmother Laura Elizabeth Parker Wood had married and moved away from Kanarraville, Utah in 1910 but she owned a copy of this photo. In 1917 she was living in Hurricane, Utah. These women must be her very good friends and many of them are her cousins. One of them must have sent the photo.
(Laura's copy in Lark's collection.)

More photos of Kannarra to be added.
