I like the look of a soothing monochrome on an old photo. So Sepia Scenes arrives nicely this week. The picture is my guess from 1920 or 1921. The subject, of course, is Grandpa, at an age of maybe 20 years. The place I believe to be Manitou Springs near Colorado Springs. As a young man, I knew he spent a couple of years in California before returning back to Steubenville.
Perhaps a made a stop off here, after the long train climb over the Sierras and Rockies from the Golden State. I guess the spring water was bottled there, and Grandpa stood nearly at tall as the container. A gentleman who always seemed cool.
