Alexander Wallace Perry

A photo from a collection my dad got from his sister.

I love this photo. Alex, on the chair, looks like my grandpa George. There is humor in the photo which suggests that getting a photo taken was familiar enough to not just be a formal occasion and inexpensive enough to goof around during a portrait. The skinny guy may be his brother, Frank Elbert Perry. The photographer was Burke and Mead in Lake Crystal MN.Image
