This is a photo of my infant grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather. Taken at Tooting, 1912. Although they look like quite the dapper gentlemen here, they were skilled laborers...stone masons, who worked on the restoration of Arundel Castle in Sussex, sometime at the turn of the century.
After coming to America, they continued working with stone, settling eventually in southern Indiana...limestone country. The infant pictured, as well as my father, worked in the limestone industry. Dear old dad left stone cutting behind him in the 1950's and went on to college and a career in journalism.
