Melvin

I scanned three pictures of my Grandpa (my father's father), Melvin Kelly, today.  I have the pictures on my wall, but thought I would share them here.  He was born 5 September 1899 so I imagine these pictures were taken in early 1900.

That gown! Those photos are amazing. Especially the smiling one.

That last picture is a beauty. Often pictures from that time period have people looking so stern ( which would be a big ask for a baby!)

I wish I had pictures as old as these of my grandparents as youngsters.

Oh my what a Christening gown Big grandpa wore. I see a bit of Nancy Kelly there.
