These two pictures are among about seventy-five negatives I found in the pages of his Mother’s (Ella D(uryee Guion) Prayer Book. I believe they are pictures taken by Grandpa as a young teen with a camera much like the Brownie Camera which was my first camera.It is visible in the last picture, his “selfie” taken in the mid-1990’s.

Starting tomorrow I will post a week of random memories that are not in chronological order and need to be moved to a more appropriate place in this collection of Childhood Memories .
It’s great to have these photos from different time periods for comparison. The selfie is priceless.
Gallivanta – I have to admit that is one of my favorite pictures of Grandpa. Another is when he was a little younger, in the “fancy” Lincoln Ave. house, with his sister wearing a hat with a feather in it and a pinafore, and with their dog between them.
