A Little Boy and His Baseball Bat in 1920’s America

‘Discover This’ is a post series highlighting especially compelling photos Photomyne users decided to publish and share through the Photomyne app’s Discover feed. Each post will showcase a memorable Discover moment along with story behind it, as told by the person who published it.

Photomyner Billie Gall shared this lovely photo of her then-kid-father (1928):

“This photograph is a picture of my dad when he was about 4 or 5 years old. It was taken outside of the family business, Fisher’s Pharmacy, on National Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, around 1928.”

Thanks to the Photomyne app, Billie has safe copies of all of family’s photo memories, which she can then share with future generations of the family.

I have numerous photos of my dad at this age in various outfits, but this one is one of my favorites. Alas, the business and my dad are no longer with us, but these memories live on, in part thanks to Photomyne.
