A handsome man in his bib overalls and the phone looks rather new. I do not see a dial on the phone but I could be wrong here. the commonly known dialer with holes was not used until 1904. The smaller telephone companies used them but were not introduced by Bell until 1919.I imagine that the picture was taken sometimes between 1904 and 1919. I cant be positive now but that would be my best guess. Thanks for sharing the family and phone with us.
