Daniel Pinna This is an amazing photo. Do you know if this photo was taken in 1903 or the 1920s? I see two dates?

Becky Christian Thank you so much for putting such a wonderful statement about my grandfather . He also used his talent to help others in his community . He helped so many young men to get fit and how important it is . He even helped a young man with Cerebral palsy to walk back in the days when they said he would never walk . You will never know how special this is to me and my family . Thank you all for your wonderful comments . God Bless, Becky Christian ( John's Granddaughter )
