Which (Chasidic?) group do the clothes indicate, if any #austria-czech #galicia

I don't think anything about the clothes is indicative of a specific chassidik group. I think that religious Litvaks (Lithuanian or generally non-chassidik) would dress similarly. (For example there is a famous picture of Rabbi Boruch Ber Lebowitz who was one of the big Rabbis in Lithuania and his dress is quite similar.)
Knowing the area they were from, their customs, their accents, or even their names would be able to provide clues as to whether they belonged to any chassidik group.

Sorry i can't identify any chassidic group  However, in presnt day, the man's hat is usually an identifying item.  When I'm on line at El Al in Newark Airport I'm
usually intrigued by the variety of hats the men wear, as well as the variety of hat boxes they are toting from NY!

The white "over pants", that are described, appear to be a "tallit katan", a (small tallis), worn by religious men. You can observe the tzitzit hanging down in the photo. It might also help to know from what city the family lived, as different chassidic sects were prominent in different cities. Is the man's hat symbolic of a particular group?  I've never seen that type hat as a religious symbol. I think that they just got dressed up for a formal photo.
