Treasure Chest Thursday - Paul, Dorothy, and Leo - 1917


Treasure Chest Thursday - Paul, Dorothy, and Leo - 1917



I recently came across this photo, that I don't believe I have shared previously, at least not here.

Leo (the baby) was born March 1917 - he is now 95, of course, as we have shared here, earlier.

Parents are Paul and Dorothy (Sorensen) Kinnick - my maternal grandparents. I can think of no other photo I have of them within a couple of years of this particular photo - which makes it that much more special! What a treasure!  ;-)

My mother, Eileen, was born in December 1918, of course; to put it in perspective. Their third child (last), Buzzy, was born in August of 1928. All three were born in Coon Rapids, Iowa, of course.


Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. Nice photo to have. They look like a young, proud couple, don't they?

  2. Now that you mention it, when Leo was born, he was 24 and she was 29... Yes, they were a proud couple, for sure! ;-)

  3. I haven't seen this one.
    You have Paul's eyes.

  4. Is that what it is? His eyes are really 'eerie' - to me - in this photo! That may be it... like looking in the mirror. I'll want to check that out a little more. Thanks for the comment! ;-)

  5. Notice, also, he already has a 'very high' forehead! ;-)
