Mystery Christmas group photo from 102 years ago

This AZO real photo postcard has only this caption on the back: "Taken Christmas day Dec. 25 1916."

So that's 102 years ago. It's a mystery, though, who these people are. Or where the photograph was taken.

Here's a closer look at everyone, to help you assign amazing backstories to all of these interesting folks from a century ago. (And the little dog, too.) Given the date of this photo, the oldest people in it were probably born around 1840, well before the invention of pasteurization, dynamite, the telephone, the phonograph, the light bulb, the bicycle and the ballpoint pen. All those things came to the world during their lifetimes.
