Was Tony wearing Henry's sweater?

This photo was taken in about 1935-36, I think....and look, they're mostly smiling, even Grandpa!
Left to right: Henry, Matt, Mike, Fronie, Grandpa Anton A. Hesch , Katie, Rosie, Grandma Elizabeth (Sand) Hesch, Tony and Ted.
This copy came from Sue (my MAJOR photo, but the last time I saw it was at Uncle Tony's house. Evidently, the standing joke among the family was about those sweaters, and 73 years later, I still want to switch 'em around, don't you?
