27403 Photo Identification

5/19/2013 4:21 PM This is supposedly an image of my great-great grandparents that was passed down by my great grandfather. I know almost nothing about them. If you recognize them or even if a detail in the image could tell anything about them no matter how seemingly unimportant the information- I'd love to know.
I know them as "Ida and Morris Horwitz" based on an application my g-grandfather put in for a ssn but it is commonly accepted (though not proven) that he changed his name upon immigrating to the US in 1905 from Abromovich to Horwitz.
Morris and Ida were likely born in the 1860s and Louis has listed Kaunas and Taurage as his hometown on various documents so I assume this is where the portrait was taken.
They had 2 sons who immigrated to the US during the turn of the century and there were whispers about 4-5 other children who never made it to the US and perished either in a pogrom or the Holocaust (Louis only ever said "They were all killed together")
