oldford, You are right! I somehow miscounted. They are 46 star flags, so photo could be older or older flags on the wall. The 48 star flag became official on July 4 1912, after the official addition of New Mexico and Arizona to the Union. As with most of the Western states, up until that year those "states" had been territories. Tradition officially added new stars to the flag on the July 4th following the official addition of a territory to statehood. The 46 star flag became official on July 4 1908 after the official admission of Oklahoma into the Union late in calendar year 1907.

 

I had better start watching my step more. I seem to be messing up a bit much lately. Way too much stress in my life in recent years.
