Three boys.

Douglas Dec 17 83

Alec Nov 29 1889   91

Monte  Mar 6 85

The dates make no sense to me…IF the photo was taken in 1900, the boys would be 17, 11 and 15.  If it was taken in 1895 they would be 12, 6 and 10  which is much more believable.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I'm guessing the date is 1889, and the numbers under the boys are in reference to a genealogy chart.

  2. I think the photo was taken in 1900. Only Alec has the year of birth noted (1889) - he would therefore be 11. The other numbers underneath, 83, 91 and 85 were the ages the men were, or would have been, when whoever added that information.

  3. Aupol is a french family name - but is rather rare.

  4. Great picture from so far away...has me stumped :(
