The third son of Isaac Spencer “Ike” LILLIE and Florence ROYALTY, Raymond Egbert LILLIE (1904-1970) never married. We first saw him with his brother Roy and Uncle George in Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can ~ #45 Three LILLIE Men.
I don’t know where he got the nickname “Splitty” but he and his brother Roy were a spiffy dressers.
Perhaps taken the same day the photograph (below) was likely reproduced from the negative. It is in better condition and was not included in this collection. My cousin Joe shared it on Facebook.
It looks like Raymond is wearing the hat his brother Roy held in his hand in the previous photo. It may also be the same hat Roy was wearing when they posed with their uncle George Wyte LILLIE in 1930.
