  1. Lots of information here, I hope someone is able to track the family down to return the photo. The child has a beautiful face, lovely photo.

  2. What expressive eyes this little guy has.

    How I miss the chatty notes/letters that people used to write. Sadly, those glimpses into daily life will not survive in the cyber world.
