A Happy Boy: Fred Herrel 1924

This handsome little fellow is my grandfather, Frederick Calvin Herrel. He was born 97 years ago this week on May 20, 1914, to parents Harry and Mabel Herrel. Little Freddy, or "Fritz" as they called him, grew up in German Village on the south side of Columbus. Fred Herrel married Wilma Steele in 1935 (you can see their wedding picture in my earlier post about her), and they enjoyed 66 years together before they both died, two months apart, in 2002. This picture was taken in December 1924, when he was 10 years old. Doesn't he look happy up there on that pony?
