Great photo, Arlene! Was Arthur a policeman? I can't make out the badge on his uniform.

Yes, he was a policeman from what I have been told.

OK - so I have to ask - why did they call him "big"? - was he relatively tall? From the perspective of the photo, it appears he certainly wasn't short, but I can't get a handle on how tall he might have been.

He was about 6'4" tall. He was one of my paternal grandfathers. One of my maternal grandfathers was 5'7" so he became my Little Grandpa. Unfortunately I don't have any photos of him full length.

Wonderful Family Treasure ! Interesting period details especially the barn with what appears to be including a unique room with a window. His feet are angled at standing attention perfect at 45 degrees. I always like seeing things that never change like the rise and run construction of the steps and his dedicated persona. Great share th'xs Arlene ..
