Here is one of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Carringer photograph collection:
This photograph is of my grandfather, Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976), taken in about 1918. I don't know the setting of this photograph - it may be near the Carringer house on 30th Street in San Diego with a typical palm tree as a background.
Lyle enlisted in the United States Marine Reserves in 1917, and served in the P X at the Marine Encampment in Balboa Park through 1918. He was all of 5 feet 7 inches tall and about 125 pounds, but he was a Marine! Lyle married Emily Auble on 19 June 1918 in San Diego.
