What did life have in store for you young man ?

 This is Leonard Robert Carius, son of Eva. I know this only because it is written on the back of the framing. It is such a charming image of a little man pushing his little man sized barrow.
His smile, eyes and stance hold in them all the innocence and promise of childhood. I wonder what Leonard's life held for him ?
The frame is lovely wide Silky Oak. It is available at The Woolloongabba Antique Centre.

    I agree .. there is something so incredibly sweet about this photo.. and perhaps the angle of the shot but his little legs look like they are going to struggle with that barrow..
