This is my older brother, L.A. (now a professor at Iowa State) in about 1958. Any ideas about where this was taken?
This is a picture of my (much older) brother with our Uncle Russel, somewhere around Maryville, Missouri, about 1959. Uncle Russel wasn’t really an uncle at all, but the husband of an adopted second-cousin who was nearly given back to the orphanage and then unofficially re-adopted by my grandparents, making her an Aunt. Just goes to show, families aren’t always as clean-cut as a pedigree chart.
Life steps in occasionally and hands up the most unusual memories. A few years ago, Scott and I took a trip to China, and just as I was snapping this photo of our hosts, this enigmatic little photobomber boy strode into the shot. It has become one of my favorite pictures of the whole trip.
