Passage of time

In my treasures, I found three pictures of my great great grandfather Alexander Yuill who was born in 1869 in Yonkers, New York right after his parents arrived in America. The photos amaze me as they show the passage of time as he ages. The similar poses show the same brown ridge and chin . Especially how he grew a mustache and kept it into old age.

  1. Thanks for sharing your great, great grandfather as a series of pictures. It is a lovely way to capture the life of a man. I am inspired to dig through my family’s old pictures to see if I can replicate what you have done.
