This little guy, while looking a little sad, has a good chance of finding his descendants. There was no doubt about who he was based on the name, birth date and death date on the back of the card – also shown. I found him for sale in one of my favorite eBay stores – you can see it here. He’s grouped with some other great kid pics.
Victor E. Guild was born in 1868 to Romanzo Guild and Margaret Proper. This photo, at what can’t be more than a year, was taken in Titusville, Pennsylvania. Victor apparently died in Pennsylvania in 1949.
Cheer up little buddy!
