Grandpa Eliseo: 1920s

Grandpa Eliseo: 1920s

The man seated on the running board is my wife's paternal grandfather, Eliseo Diaz. The photo was taken (we assume) in San Antonio, Texas in the late 1920s. My father-in-law, a sharp 91-year-old himself, isn't sure if his father owned that Model T or was just resting himself there on his friend's car. Either way, he was happy to have recently discovered this shot of his father in his familiar, cross-legged pose. I am equally happy to scan it and present it here on my favorite daily haunt, Shorpy.
