Throwback Thursday: Jack, Dick and the Pony

John Thomas “Jack” Irvine and Richard. Bradford, Pennsylvania, circa 1928-29.

I love this photo of my grandfather, Jack Irvine, grinning impishly as his baby brother, Dick, cries fearfully atop the pony.

Grandpa would have been about 13-14 years old in this photo, and based on their attire we can guess that it was probably summer in McKean County, Pennsylvania.

Around this time, Jack and Dick’s father, George Beach Irvine, supported his family (3 boys & 1 girl) with money earned as a machinist, a trade which he likely learned from his father, Arthur Thomas Irvine.

    Not sure if the boy on the pony is Uncle Dick. I was told it was my dad Ken.
