(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 257: A Young Edward R. Seaver

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Richmond family photograph collection passed to me by my cousin Laura in 2008:

According to the caption below the photo in the album, this is a photograph of Edward Richmond Seaver (1913-2004), my father's younger brother. They were sons of Frederick W. and Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver.

My estimate is that he is about age 3 in this photograph, so it was taken in the 1916-1917 time frame.

The setting is probably somewhere near Leominster, Massachusetts.  It may be a park or a rural area where the family visited or went hiking.  

I received this photo, as a digital image, in 2008 from my cousin Laura, who is a great-granddaughter of Grace (Richmond) Shaw, sister to my grandmother, Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver.  Laura had some pictures of our Seaver family that I did not have (because Bessie sent them to Grace), and kindly shared them with me.
