The Saturday Scan

WilliamWetzel_1882_GGfather

This is my Great Grandfather William Wetzel. I don’t have an exact date for this photo but he was born in 1882 & looks less than 2 years old in the photo. I love the dress and lace collar. This was taken back when little boys & girls both wore the same style clothing until they were age 3 or so. I suspect it had something to do with ease of changing diapers and being potty trained. I also love the boots & tiny cane he has been given as a prop.

But what I love best is his resemblance to Mayhem

120 years later.. isn't it fascinating to see old pictures of relatives and find a resemblance in your own family?
They really do look quite alike - five generations apart!
