Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can ~ #70 Bill BROWN

This photograph was identified on the back as Bill Brown. Nothing further was written to pinpoint where and when the photo was taken. A relationship to George H. Brown 1872-1929 featured last week is unlikely as both George and his brother John did not have sons or grandsons. BrownBill Rooney collectionThe rod iron fence in the background may help to identify the location the photograph was taken at. There are several two and three-story buildings behind the bare leaved trees. Was it fall or spring?

Bill isn’t wearing a coat over his suit and tie. His suit pants are wide in the hips and narrow down at his shoes. They appear to have a large cuff. Bill is posing with his hands in his pants’ pockets making it difficult to tell the length of his jacket or if it is double or single breasted.

As a military brat I've lived in Georgia, France, Idaho, West Virginia, Spain, South Carolina, Texas, and Luxembourg. Married 36 years with two grown children. When I’m not doing genealogy, I spend time riding my racing bike with my husband through the wonderful countryside in Luxembourg and surrounding countries.

  1. Bill Brown—another name that must be a dime a dozen. I’m afraid I can’t help much. That could be anywhere in the world, let alone the US. As for time period, it certainly looks like 20th century to me, and I’d guess sometime between 1920 and 1940s. But I am really not good at the use of clothes to date photographs…yet!
