Recognize this feller?

Isaac Charles Davenport, fall 1915
I just found this picture behind several other photos in a frame here at my house from my grandparents house. It's my grandfather. Tell me, does it remind you of anyone you know?

Goon Dad didn't get to meet Jay, they missed each other by about 5 years, but I know Goon Dad would certainly think Jay was one of the finest lookin' fellers in town. 

Hopefully I can get this photo restored or at least have it preserved so it does not deteriorate any further. I'm so glad to have it and hope I can find the right place for it in our home. 


  1. Wow, what a neat keepsake! And I can't believe how much they look alike...that is so fun. And about the banners I made...yes, they really are easy! I'll be posting about them soon. :)

  2. Forgot to add he is just precious!! I could die for that smile and dimple!! :)

  3. Thanks, Sarah! Can't wait for the banner how-to.

    And yes, I'm a sucker for the dimples--I think this could mean trouble for my attempts at discipline down the road.

  4. Now I can't say that a blog hasn't made me cry...

  5. Awww. Me too. I think they would have been big fans of each other.
