…I’d like to wish all fathers a very Happy Father’s Day!

The little guy on the left is my own Dad, who passed just before Father’s Day in 1994.
The photograph was taken in the summer of 1919 and was originally hand-tinted.
My Dad had a copy negative made back in 1980, from which I printed a number of 8×10 black and whites, then sepia-toned.
Copies were given to his two brothers and four sisters.
My grandparents were immigrants from what was then Czechoslovakia, who came to America in 1912.
I’m pleased they revered the art of photography, so that I am able to present this image today, ninety-four years later!
