Other observations

Best guess is that Ruth and Edwin are standing at the table helping prepare some food. Note how that Edwin (now age 6) is the same height as Ruth (a year older). The boy in front of the table could again either be Edgar or Oswald and it is probably Charles sitting on the low chair.
