Aunty Elvie’s Husband & Child (1940s)

I haven’t had a lot to do with some of my aunts, let alone their husbands. This is a scanned photograph that was made by my father’s mother Elvie Ruth Bonner (1901-1986) some time in the 1940s to early 1950s. My sister’s best guess is this is Elvie’s first husband with their son (although the family tree doesn’t have any of Elvie’s marital or family details). I do kind of like this photograph though, it’s very of its era. My grandmother’s low perspective (she was barely five feet tall) with a slight crouch has the subject dominating the portrait image. It lends a certain strength to the hard working man.
