Photo Number 751

This is a snapshot from an antique shop..I am not sure which one.

WM M Ryan 1919

Wm Ryan

Wm. M. Ryan   Sept 4 1919

1 year old in June 1919.

So we have a name and a birth month and year!  We have a fifteen month old in a pedal car in a 92 year old snapshot..ready to go home if a relative is found.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. Hmm... this might not be so simple. :)

    I found two William M. Ryan's in the Social Security Death index - one born 22 June 1918 (issued in Iowa, died 18 January 1995 in Camden Missouri) and the other born 15 June 1918 (issued in Kansas and died 7 May 2009 in Johnson, Kansas). And that assumes the car owner died... it's not totally out of the question that Mr. Ryan is still with us.

    Not much evidence in the photo to place it anywhere... A stone building - but they could have been visiting relatives...

  2. There is a living William M Ryan in Nebraska of about the right age.

  3. Interesting look back in history through photographs. All the best in 2012.
