With the passing of my 96 year old aunt this week, I got to searching for old photos of her. While doing so, I found this picture of my grandfather. The original from which I scanned the attached pic is printed on a metal plate. The plate is only about 2"X3" and the scanned portion is about 1/3 the area. I am amazed it has survived so well. I'll have to do some research to find the approximate years metal plates were used. He was a young man in the pic but I don't have any bio information on him to help fix a date. He died in 1963. I'll surmise the shot was of him in his 20s and the picture taken about 1900. The original is very dark but through the magic of PhotoShop I was able to preserve his image.
