Just curious as to your guesstimate as to the age of the person second from the left in this photo? My son dug this out of a stack of images in my collection.

Thanks,
Jon

Early 30s. Photographed c.1915.*
Life went by quicker in generations past.

I haven't a clue about the ages, but the two young ladies standing in the back right could pass for my ex-wife and one of my daughters, respectivly.

Wow Rick, I wouldn't have guessed you were that old...

As for my guess, I'm thinking mid-thirties, maybe early 40's.

Late 20's or early 30's. I'll guess at 28.

It was taken in Germany in 1922, so my son was wondering if the man in question might be Hitler, who was born in 1889.

20 to 45
But if he's the father of the three young boys, I would infer from this element he should be older than 20. Not a wrinkle though (nice photoshop work, or how was it called by that time ;) ).

Hmm... only missed it by 7 years... not so bad.

Here's a portrait of Adolf Hitler that is dated 1922 (http://collections.yadvashem.org/photosarchive/en-us/5746829_47817.html). The most obvious difference is that the hair is parted on the opposite side.

I'd put him between 35 and 45 - remember most people married and started spawning much younger than they do today, so it would be entirely possible for him to be 35 and have three teenage children. Whoever he is, it's not Hitler. This guy's jaw is too square, for one thing.
