Judging from the their clothes, I would say the photo was taken no later than 1910.

Amazing photo.

This was definitely taken in 1929; I know this because the photo is part of a set and the others are clearly 20s (cloche hats, short skirts etc.) The reason their clothes seem to pre-date that are because they are deliberately meant to - they are in costume, not their everyday clothes.

From the offset pattern of the stars on the flag, the flag "may" be the 45 star version used from July 4, 1896–July 3, 1908,
recognizing the new state of Utah.
