(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 211: Grandfather Seaver at 50

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).    

Here is a photograph from the Geraldine Seaver Remley  family collection given to me by the family in 2007 after Aunt Gerry's passing.:
 




This is a photograph of my paternal grandfather, Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942), taken in about 1925, probably in Leominster, Massachusetts.  He is about 49 in this photo, been married for about 25 years, with seven children (six living).  This may have been taken at an anniversary occasion, or the marriage of one of his daughters.  Check out the bow tie, and the pipe.

I can definitely see a resemblance to my own father, and even to myself.
