Uncle Bob Butler and Uncle Will Harrison

Can you tell I've been busy at the scanner? Ran across this photo when I was at my Aunt Judy's house this past summer. More family, but they aren't related to each other.

My great grandfather Leonard Butler married my great grandmother Minnie Harrison. Bob, who is on the left, was my great-grandfather's brother and Will was my great grandmother's brother. They were good friends. Hard to tell where this photo was taken. Looks like a studio. Don't know where they would have found the money for that. They look like they are about 18.

Anyway, I thought it was kind of a cool photo.

What a beautiful picture! To an outsider it appears so full of mystery and melancholy. It makes you want to ask so many questions. Thank you for sharing it, Troy.

I never know with old photographs how much the stoic look is a result of having to be still for so long, but typically subjects just look like they are staring off into space. There does seem to be some depth here. I don't know much about these guys. Wish I'd known them better.

I've really enjoyed your last two posts. The pictures are incredible. Lise seems to be fond of your new scanning hobby. We received your latest work today and I haven't seen her laugh like that in a long time. Keep up the great work.
