    That morose-looking kid in the collar is my grandpa. His family regarded him as the "black sheep" -- he was left-handed, and so was constantly getting into trouble in school and playing hooky, because he was no good at writing with his right hand as required. In those days, that was the express track out of school and into match-factory employment, and there he found himself at age 9. He eventually became a union plumber and did just fine, but he was an extremely smart man and it's too bad that era didn't have the vision to offer him an education.
