Grandpa Myers Age 19

I believe this is the earliest photo we have of my grandfather, Harvey Myers.
The back of the photo reads in an excellent hand:
Made June 1st, 1896 in Lebanon, Ohio. On my 19th birthday!

I think my brother Tom will agree--they share a remarkable resemblance. Click on photo to enlarge.

 Corner of this photo says Galion, Ohio where the clippings confirm that Harvey went at age 10 to live with a sister after his parents death. His first marriage was in 1902 at age 23--so this photo I reckon precedes 1902.
