Two brothers

Emmanuel Kenneth Iles & Clifford Harvey Iles
Posted by Picasa

I love this photo of two of my father's younger brothers. What happy faces! Don't they look like that they would like to get into mischief? Cliff is two years older than Manny as he was called by the family. Later in business, he would either go by E.K. or Kenneth. Note that neither are wearing shoes.

Work took Manny to western Canada but he returned to this area for the latter years of his work in the banking industry. Manny died at the age of 60.

I worked with Cliff in the produce department when I was a teenager. We always had lots of fun.


  1. They are so cute! Talk about "Little Rascals"! I wonder if they had freckles?

  2. I was going to mention "The Little Rascals", but Greta beat me to it. That's just what these two little guys look like--absolutely terrific!

  3. Janet! What an amazing photograph of my dad and Uncle Cliff. (It's wonderful that Uncle Cliff still has that roguish smile!)Would it be possible for you to email me a copy? (btw...I've found more photos for you...I just have to hook up the scanner and get to work :) )
    Lots of love heading your way,

  4. Greta & Becky yes they do look like little rascals.

    I didn't know if you would have this photo. I will send one to you by email.

  6. What cute boys - I love when these old photos really give us a glimpse into their character. Sometimes they are so posed...but not this one. It's perfect!

  7. An adorable photo. You just want to hug them!
