Famous Ancestors?

Gotta watch out. Things are not always as they seem. Take note of this old-timey picture among the items collected by my dear old father-dad. Who are these people and why is Myrt so cautious?

Well, this photo was made circa 1970s in one of those old-style photography studios that provide period clothing designed to make curious-looking pictures like this of people as if they lived during the Victorian era.

Undated photo from the author's collection.

My dad Glen S. Player. M. D. is seated, wearing the top hat and a serious expression. My step-brother Jim Bennett is pictured on the left and my brother Mike Player is pictured on the right.

Just goes to show that you should be very careful not to misjudge a photo.

Happy family tree climbing!

  1. With hair and a mustache like that, there is no mistaking the 1970's!

  2. I was going to mention exactly the same Joe! Those sideburns are unmistakable!
