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".
