Treasure Chest Thursday

We don't have too many of what you would call "family heirlooms". We are lucky enough to have many precious photographs and I would like to share this one today on Treasure Chest Thursday. This is a photo of my grandfather, Leland V. Norris. I never saw this photo hanging on a wall when I was growing up. I suspect it was kept in the attic of the family house in Kettering, Ohio for all those years. You can't tell from this copy, but the picture is very large, almost a 16x20. It resides in a beautiful golden frame with the "bubble" glass lovingly protecting it. I believe he looks like he was about 2 years old here, thus dating the photo sometime around 1901. I love his beautiful blonde curls. It seems as a child, he was quite pampered! It truly is one of my "treasures".


  1. Oh, how beautiful! I love his golden curls, and you are so lucky to have such a precious "treasure."


  2. Hi Lori, great blog. I'm looking forward to reading more. This is a wonderful genealogy community ;-) Welcome

  3. Thank you for sharing! This digital image would make a nice centerpiece to a collage of photos of him in in later life, as well.

    What a treasure!

    Bill ;-)
