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. | Click image for Comments.
