This is a picture of my father Harry Meseth (left) and his brother Herb Meseth taken about 1910 in Chicago, Illinois. My father was born 8 October 1908, and he appears to be around two.

  1. Carol, on most all photos of young boys in dresses, the boys hair is parted on the side and little girls in the middle. Just something to think about.

  2. James; I have those names in my family and was wondering if your Parkers and mine could be related somewhere along the line? Could you contact me?

  3. If I didn’t know my history on children’s fashions I would just assume the little boy was a girl because of the dress and my children ask me why I waste my time on the past….well duh! Very cute pictures of children from back in the day.

    James….My question is the same as Veras. Parkers are in my direct line.
