For the Take A Word YESTERDAYS challenge.

This was my grandfather, Leonard, who was born 1899, the youngest child of four.  This studio photo was taken around 1906 and I think it was to celebrate the occasion of my great grandma's second marriage, having lost her first husband, my great grandfather, when Leonard was four.

Family history is a wonderful journey!
