The Young Fred Seaver All Dressed Up -- Post 327 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I am posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't "Wordless" - I am incapable of having a wordless post!

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family photograph collection from my 40 years of photo albums, boxes and piles of family photographs:

I think that this is a photograph of my father, Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983), as a boy, or maybe a young teenager, all dressed up in a coat and tie, with his hair slicked back, and a smile on his face.

My guess is that he is about age 12 to 14 in this picture, which dates the photograph to 1923-1926 time frame.  It was probably taken in Leominster, Massachusetts, perhaps on the occasion of his sister Evelyn's wedding in February 1926 (he would be 14 then).  His sister Marion married in August 1928, and I think he would look older by then, being almost 17 years old.
