Edwin Lee Evans

 

Edwin Lee Evans was born 2 July 1930 in Burbank California.

His father was Paul Monroe Evans who was a career police officer for the Burbank Police Department. Edwin’s mother was Jewell P. Shields daughter of Lawrence Wilbur Shields and Ethel Corine Taylor.

The picture dates to about 1935, making Edwin around five years old.

Almost certainly the location is near Burbank California. As with all children, in any era, he is showing off some of his best clothes while squinting into the sun.
