Throw Back Thursday

This photo is in honor of my Dad and Father’s day this coming Sunday. I’m planning to spend the day with him so this is a little early.   Happy Father’s Day, Dad!

I actually have the sailor suit he is wearing. His mother made it.  I think he must have been 3-4 years old so the year must be  about 1925 or 26.   He’s holding a bunny so maybe it’s an Easter photo.

The photo was taken at his home in Puyallup, WA.  The stonework behind him was part of the porch his dad built.  The house and porch are still standing nearly 100 years later.  He carried the stones home from the Carbon River.

    Wow, what an amazing picture and accompanying story! The fact that it’s made from stones from the Carbon River make it that much more special. What a wonderful history you have.

    Glad to have found your blog. We bike the Foothills Trail on a regular basis and have admired the Carbon River rocks many a time. I can only imagine how much more beautiful they were back then.

    Have a Wonderful Weekend!
