This is my grandfather Ernie Voisin standing with his daughter, my aunt Nora May as a little girl. This was taken at Houghton Lake, Michigan on July 4, 1927.1 They went for a ride in this airplane, which appears to be a 1927 Waco 10.
On the back of this picture is written, “Houghton Lake; July 4, 1927; Dady & Noramay and the Airaplane they went up in.” Here it is along with a montage of other unrelated, restored Waco 10 airplanes.2
