Over the summer I took a break from posting these old photographs. Many more remain to be shared. I plan on doing at least one a week, on Thursdays.
This is a spin-off of my 52 Ancestors: #14 Albert Spencer LILLIE (1848-1913) ~ Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can blogpost in which I featured a few photos from a collection of old photographs my 4C1R Joe Rooney shared with me. I asked Joe about using the photos and he kindly wrote, “Please use them at your will. I feel it is keeping it in the family and don’t need credit. If anything, I appreciate your evaluations, identifications and detective work. I’m hopeful you and yours enjoy them. On a blog, in a book, above a cloud.”
#20 Alnie W. ROYALTY
Alnie W. ROYALTY was born 10 February 1888 in Allen Springs, Pope County, Illinois, to Charles W. ROYALTY and Lizzie M. WALTER.

When a little boy was too old to wear a dress he was “breeched.” In this photograph Alnie, about 5 or 6, too old to be wearing a dress, is wearing trousers with high laced up boots.
A piece of paper reading “Alnie Royalty Charlie son” was tapped to the reverse side of this photo.
