My great grandfather and grandmother on my father's father's side, were Walter LeRoy Tidd and his wife Florence. This shot is from probably early in their marriage, 1920-1921. I don't know where the picture was taken, but that shed behind them shows up in many pictures, so it is likely a family property.

This picture was identified as around 1921, but he seems a tad older. Not sure about the curl on his forehead, if it is a fashion thing or an injury, or just something wrong with the film. The location is identified as Pennington, New Jersey, which is in Mercer County, dead center practically in the state and on the border with Pennsylvania. It apparently is still somewhat rural.

Hard to date the following two shots of Walter, one with his daughter Janet. Probably 1921-1922. in most pictures I have seen of him, he looks dapper and well-turned out.

Herewith a couple of shots of Florence on the beach at Asbury Park, New Jersey.
