Wow, this is just the most adorable photo of these three Bell brothers, and I love how they are wearing matching uniforms!  I see that John Henderson Bell is holding a ball of some kind in his left hand, and eldest brother Wililam has what appears to be a ball-tied-to-paddle in his right hand. While these are likely props from the photo studio, this is such a wonderful picture showing clothes and toys of the time, circa 1900.  

Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful picture--I love it, and the boys are just adorable!

What a "ringer" of a picture.

The Bell Boys picture is absolutely adorable.  Forced me to smile without realizing it.

Your dad is so cute with his hands in his pockets, and his twin with the ball in his hands.

Thank you for sharing.
