Oh, Baby!

George Clarence Milton Harding. Date 1913. Location Rowland, Pike, Pennsylvania. Scanned copy. Original privately held by Msteri, [ADDRESS FOR PRIVATE USE] California. 2008

This is my maternal grandfather I believe a little over a year of age. He was the seventh born of eight children, and was the second of two sons. I found this photo in my mother's photo album. The lower right corner apparently had been ripped, you can see the tape if you look closely.

The first born child was a son and then there were five daughters, my grandfather and then another daughter. I am very happy to have this photo in my collection and just love the outfit!

Submitted for the 7th edition of "Smile for the Camera" carnival.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  1. This is a great picture, I started to grin as soon as I saw it. The outfit he is wearing is interesting. I'm not sure if it was constructed to have poofy legs or if they are scrunched up.

  5. Hi keeg's mom, tipper, taylor-stales and apple!

    Thank you all for your comments. He was the most wonderful grandfather, still thought of often by our family, and greatly missed. His outfit is interesting, almost looks like a rope tied around his waist! Glad you all enjoyed!
