Hi Virginia, I don't think you'll find a descendant with pictures by this method. If they lived in Kern County for a long time, the Kern County Genealogical Society MIGHT have pictures. Of course they charge a research fee.
You might have better luck if you track down their descendants. There is an obituary volunteer at Random Acts Genealogical Kindness. Go to raogk.org Read guidelines Choose California Choose J thru L Scroll down to Kern Co. and choose Carl.
Then look in the CA Death Index for deaths of their survivors. When I get close to this year, I use spokeo.com or zabasearch.com to find current addresses. Successful Searching!
