Photo of the Day – January 24, 2015

This is a fun photo of my grandfather as an infant sitting on a blanket looking curiously at the kitten next to him. As he was born in November 1924, I believe this photo was taken in late winter/early spring 1925 based on the snowsuit-like outfit he’s wearing. If he was any older, he could double as Ralphie’s brother in ‘A Christmas Story.’
