Little Fred Kroetch (pronounced 'crutch') in 1928 Washington state. We really don't know the story behind this photo...were his parents just having fun dressing him up? Or was it Halloween? He was 3 years old in the picture, and this particular photo has always been a family treasure of ours. Since my grandparents and his siblings (4) are long deceased, we can't ask them why Uncle Fred is smoking a cigar and wearing a hat and suit! 🙁 He did die of lung cancer, but I never saw him smoke a cigar! Fred had a long, good life even though - as happened often at the time - his mother died when he was 7. We've started building his biography but still have so much to share about him.
