The back of the photo says...Albert
This is an early photo of my father's father.
His name was also Peter Albert Sjolander.
He went by the name Albert.
Born 1878 died 1926
In this photo he looks about 20 years old.
So the photo was taken about 1900.

Peter (Me) at about six months.
Looks like someone was into art shots.
Back of photo says Jan. or Feb. 1942.
But since it is a photo of me and I was born July 1942.
I think is should read Jan. or Feb. 1943.
