I noticed your blog entry show up in my Twitter #genealogy feed and can't resist a good challenge! At first look I would have guessed this is a 1910s photo as well - but when searching for that particular Minuteman image and the savings stamps associated with it, the only references I am finding are from a 1941 (and subsequent years) WWII savings stamp program. See this postal museum presentation for several slides beginning at page 32. The beginning of the presentation shows WWI era stamp programs, but those appear to have used Founding Fathers as the images. http://bit.ly/9RJKcy Also look about 3/4 of the way down this page for some more info - including a statement that in "May, 1941 the America on Guard series appeared..." http://chsclassof1963.webs.com/piecesofchshistory.htm To throw a wrench into things, searching for the "Richard H. Pugh Realtor" company behind them offers a NY Times Obit for a man of that name in 1935. If the obit references the owner of the company it is in Philadelphia. Of course, the company could easily have continued into the 1940s - the obit mentions his wife, a son and 2 daughters. Obit here: http://drop.io/zswaqkv7641 Looking at the 1940s photos at the Boy Scout site it appears that the uniform looked the same up into the 1950s. Also, the boy on the left shows a Troop number "22" on his sleeve - that may just be the first two numbers, but there is a troop 22 in the area slightly Northwest of Philadelphia: http://cheltenhamtroop22.home.comcast.net/~cheltenhamtroop22/ Map of Cheltenham: http://bit.ly/bsbAu4 Fun stuff!
