Charley and Cora Hoffman – Davenport, Iowa – Photo

Found this photo in Phoenix, Az
I saw this one and thought “What an attractive couple” . Young, but not dour, they dont look hardened and rough. Stylish and attracive. Even with her specs she looks very stylish. Are they a couple? Or are they siblings?
Photographer is J.M. Lenz , Davenport, Iowa
