I love finding vintage photos in formats less commonly found. This picture is 3″ x 8″, tucked in a folder with flaps. This young man is IDed on the back as Harold H. Richmond. A note below the name in the same handwriting says World War.

On this picture private Harold is in his early twenties, standing straight and proud in his uniform. He was born in 1892 in Connecticut and he’s of the lucky ones who survived the Great War; his name isn’t listed on the lists of casualties from either New York or Connecticut, and he appears on a census from 1940.

He married a lady named Marian and did well for himself owning two listed residences; one in Winchester N.Y and another in Fairfield Connecticut.

Another Richmond from Waterbury (CT) did die during the war. He was a private with the first name of Arthur D. Was he related to Harold?
