Wordless Wednesday: Croquet

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

Men playing croquet, Shenandoah, VA about 1925-1930

From the album of my grandaunt Violetta Davis Ryan comes this photo of the fine gentlemen of Shenandoah, Virginia stopping to pose for a photo op during a rousing game of Croquet.  As is so typical of these old albums, no one is identified.  However, the man second from the right looks a lot like Violetta’s oldest brother Millard Davis.
