    Grandpa Wanless, 1916, Oakland, CA - possibly Albert s/o Stephen Wilson Wanless & Fanny Duffield
    Grandpa Wanless, 1916, Oakland, CA - possibly Albert s/o Stephen Wilson Wanless & Fanny Duffield
    The back is a postcard with "Grandpa Wanless, 3rd from right" and "Oakland" written on it in blue pen in one hand, and in black pen, it says "(L. Wanless)" and"1916". Lyle Everett Wanless, whose family this came from, was only 11 or 12 years old in 1916. The men appear to be street car or bus conductors or drivers. Lyle's father Albert had been a driver in Portland, OR in the 1890s; is it him, around age 43? The car looks like the Portland trolley shown here:
