History #1

This is my Father's Father, Charles Storey.

 

He was a Black Smith, and Wheet Farmer in Australia's Mallee Desert Region...that is where this picture was taken in about 1920.

 

I never met him...in fact he died when my Father was quite young.

Good to have photo's like this, Ray, thats a big horse.
Ray: I was delighted to get this pic, Frank.
Amazing how you resemble him... Thanks for sharing this photo, I was just looking at some old photos of my grandfather, today in fact!
Ray: Pics like this help me to imagine how my ancestors lived, Elizabeth...that is worth doing, in my opinion.
OMG, Ray. I could have sworn it was YOU! The story of your dad's dad is similar to mine, in that he died when my dad was only 7. He was 70 when my dad was born!
Ray: It is good to imagine what life was like 100 years ago, Ginnie.
Souvenir formidable que cette photo !!
Ray: Oui ... ça me fait plaisir d'avoir cette photo, Claudine.

Walking "memory" lane is wonderful, especially with picture like this. I do see some resemblance. Too bad you never got to know him.
Ray: I do like to imagine what life was like for this man, Astrid.

You look like him Ray. It's a great pity you never met. Presumably your mother talked of him when you were a kid?
Ray: My mother never met him, Chris, and my Dad new remembered him. I did once meed a very old man from the area who said Charles made some farm implements for him, and he said I looked very like my grandfather.
There is definitely a family resemblance Ray. I imagine he had a fairly hard life
Ray: I did hear that life was very hard for these pioneers...trying to farm the desert.

I can see quite a likeness. You grandfather does not look black in this picture Ray.
Ray: I expect he had his annual bath just before posing for this picture, Chad.
You may not have met him but at elast you still have this photo, you do look very much like him.
Ray: I am pleased to have this picture, Brian, as it helps me to imagine what his life might have been like.
You certainly resemble him. This happens in my family too.

That is a huge horse!
Ray: Yes...I can see resemblance, although most people say I look more like my mother.

I can see the family lines. Not the horse, yer grandpa.
Ray: Nice one, Louis! smile
What a great picture to have of your Grandfather, Ray. You can definitely see the family resemblance. That horse looks to be enormous. Can you imagine the blow you would get from one of its hooves.
Ray: Yes...I like this picture very much, Beverly.
i see the resemblance, Ray. and a good thing you have this from a trove (i imagine) of images. i like the long hair flouncing on the horse legs.
Ray: I do not have access to many old pictures, Ayush, but am pleased to have this one.
