100 years ago today

This is my father and an unknown playmate. He looks a little young to be playing with a gun. He was born on November 15, 1909, 100 years ago today. Sadly, he passed away in 1967.

Great crisp pic of your dad when he was a child!
So many pictures from the turn of the century didn't preserve very well!

So the picture is from 1913/1914 or so?

That is amazing. I wish I had pictures of my parents growing up!

Wonderful picture! The young lady doesn't seem at all perturbed to be standing by a little boy with a gun!
