I have had an old scan of this photo for many years. It wasn’t labeled, but I suspected it was a photo taken around the time of my Grandpa’s service as an LDS missionary.
While going though my Grandma’s boxes I found an original. It lists his age on the back as 22 – right during his service as a missionary. In this copy the photographer’s stamp is visible. Notice under the photographer’s name it is stamped “Auckland”. So I also now know that this photo was taken in New Zealand.
It’s a great photo I have loved for a long time, and now I know more about it. Thank you Grandma for taking such good care of our family treasures! Blowing a kiss toward heaven right now.
ps- Isn’t my Grandpa handsome?
