Love those old photographs. Despite the Wordless Wednesday designation, you know this picture is full of stories…
Without a doubt it must be. Considering this photo currently resides is in Austria (as far as I know), while taken in Iowa (undoubtedly), I’d wager this was a family photo to send “back home” to the non-immigrant siblings of Benedict (the elderly man in the photo).
Photographs like this are very precious to have around, especially when one’s tree has so few photographs at all!
