  2. What a cute little guy. Made a great pic. I hope someone in the family will connect and get to keep this one. It's high time for a Full Circle story :)

    Looks like Iggy has a great lead on possibilities for that, too!

  3. I mailed this photo today December 12, 2014 to Linda in Wisconsin. She is Clifford's daughter and they only have one other photo of Clifford as a child.

    Hi Connie,

    I’ve received the postcard photograph of my dad. It’s precious to our family because we only have one tiny photo of Dad as a child. Amazing that you found it in an antique shop. Iggy’s research is correct. Dad was a World War II veteran. He and Mom had three girls and a boy (I’ve passed a copy of the photo on to each of them). Thanks again and also a special thank you to my cousin Claudia who happened to find this photograph on your site.
