Violet Neitz is sitting in the wagon seat in the above still from an unidentified silent film. The male player standing on the ground next to the wagon - is that prolific silent screen hero J. Warren Kerrigan (1879-1947) whose last film was circa 1924?

Above is a scene from WHEELS OF DESTINY (1934), and leaning on the table are Fred and Violet MacKaye. The kindly face between them is Horace B. Carpenter. Cecilia Parker is on the left counting money, and on the right, Ken Maynard is chatting with Jack Rockwell. This is one of the seven Maynard Universals directed by Violet's brother, Alan James.

The above info and the stamped April 19, 1929 date is on the back of the photo. Notice the spelling of Mackaye - an M with the remainder all lower case. Refers to films THE CHARLATAN (Universal, 1929), PORT OF DREAMS (Universal, 1929) and THE LAST PERFORMANCE (Universal, 1927) (which was originally ERIK THE GREAT).
