Friday's Photo: Another Picture of Dad

Whit Criswell Bryan - 1943


I found this photograph of my father, Whit Criswell Bryan, in an almost finished album last week.  I knew that I had never posted it and filed it in my memory for a future post.  

However, a few days later, I found this same photograph in the January 25, 1946 issue of the Borger Daily Herald at The Portal for Texas History. Dad was stationed on the U.S.S. Adams, a destroyer, and had just left Shanghai. 

As a young man who had spent his youth in small towns in Texas, Shanghai must have been a big experience. I wonder what it was like in 1946? Click on the Portal for Texas History link to read about Dad and the U. S. S. Adams.
