Brothers & Sisters-11th Edition-Smile For the Camera

The word prompt for the 11th Edition of Smile For The Camera is brothers & sisters? Were they battling brothers, shy little sisters, or was it brother & sister against the world? Our ancestors often had only their siblings for company. Were they best friends or not? Show us that picture that you found with your family photographs or in your collection that shows your rendition of brothers & sisters. Bring them to the carnival and share. Admission is free with every photograph!

My first Smile for the Camera submission! For this edition I chose two pictures of my grandfather and his brother.

My maternal grandfather was Wallace Beautrow. He was born in 1908 in Yakima, Washington. He died before I was born, so I never had the privilege of meeting him. His brother was Frank Sidney Beautrow, born in 1906 in Yakima, Washington.

I've always enjoyed this picture simply because in today's world it's funny to see Wallace in a gown. Sidney's outfit isn't looking too masculine either. (I'm easily amused)

Here are Wallace and Sidney a few years later.

So cute! Wallace's hair amuses me in this picture. Poor kid!

I think that Wallace and Sidney got along well. Although, my mother does remember that each of them thought the other was their mother's favorite. Some things are timeless.


  1. I like Wallace's hair, too; I guess it's a bit more like a Buster Brown than a bowl haircut.

  2. I was going to say Wallace reminds me of the "Little Dutch Boy" ! Too cute! Thanks for sharing!
