Randy And His Dad in About 1944 -- Post 651 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

  I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite photographs:

This photograph was taken in late 1943 (Christmas time?) or early 1944.  The giggling baby (only 2-3 months old) is your scribe, and that is my father, Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983) lovingly holding me and beaming at me.  This is before he joined the U.S. Navy during World War II and served on the U.S.S. Halford as a Mailman 3rd Class.  

I think that the setting is on the side of my grandparents home at 2130 Fern Street in San Diego.  My grandfather, Lyle L. Carringer, probably snapped this as a black and white photo.  

This photo (originally black and white) has been enhanced and colorized using the MyHeritage photo tools.  My father's left arm is not the natural color in this photograph - I may have colorized this before MyHeritage improved the process.
