Shared Photo: My grandfather, Lawrence Van Allen, about 1907

+10 votes

I wanted to share this family photo of Lawrence Van Allen with the community. Location: Joliet, IL. Date: 1908.  I love the way he is dressed, and his shoes.  I suspect that this is the house where my great grandparents, Charles Van Allen and Friedrica Lehner lived, on Hutchins St. in Joliet, IL.

I never tire of looking at old photos. There is such drama in them.

Thank you for sharing.
