Because it looks as though Wallace is wearing a masonic label pin, I’m including a copy of his membership card with this photo.
In 1924, Wallace Petterson became a member of the Athelstan lodge, one of the 9 lodges in existence in Worcester, Massachusetts. He was 24 years old and listed his occupation as “Insurance”. He received his “50 year Masonic Veterans Medal” in 1974. And with nothing else to go on…. I’m estimating that this photo was taken then.
