Robert Stone Woods

Here is my great-grandfather, Robert Stone Woods (1857-1939), probably taken in Rocanville, Saskatchewan, sometime in the late 1920s or early 1930s. Great-Granddad was a blacksmith and sired twelve children; his youngest, William James Woods, was dad's father. I didn't retouch this photo very much at all, wanting to preserve the natural sepia tone and other slight imperfections. Why is there a cat sitting on his shoulder? I don't know, but the look works for him.
