His name was "Lidge" He was born in 1901. It's a great photo - the character in his face!

He's early for the "Greatest Generation", but I think anyone born 1900 to 1926 fits!

It reminds me that we spend a lot of time as children, then we finally reach adulthood and we're young for the blink of a second and then before we know what's happened our faces fall and wrinkle. 7 or 8 years before this picture was taken he was probably a young heartthrob. Anyone who has kids can tell you how short a time 8 years is.

He might have missed both wars, actually. Born in 1901, he would have been 17 at the end of WWI, possibly too young to join up...though he might have lied about his age.

America's entry into WWII was 1941, and he would have been 40 already.

My dad was born in 1902, and he missed both wars. He tried to in WWII, but they told him he was too old even though the draft required men as old as 45 to register. But my dad was also working as a senior machinist in a plant that was making tanks for the Army, so with the age and the war work, none of the services would let him join, and his number for the draft never came up.

Nowadays, the services maximum age limit is between 28 and 39, depending on which branch.

This guy looks like he's spent a lot of years out in the sun...cowboy, rancher, farmer, farmhand...

If this was taken in the 1930s, it was the middle of the Great Depression. My folks lived through that.

Oh, I don't know - 2 big wars in less than 25 years, the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, often losing a child or two, many children losing a parent - or both - in childhood (happened to both my parents). Sounds stressful to me! (And don't forget, it was much, much worse for minorities!)

Yes. I think 30s also. It couldn't be earlier because of his apparent age and the fact that his jacket has a zipper closure.

Or a refugee from the Dust Bowl? No information on where he was born . . . but he did end up in Sacramento CA.

Old enough to be a Great War Vet or a World War II Vet. Lived thru the Roaring Twenties AND the Crash AND the deprivations of the Great Depression. He saw some high times and some hard times.
