Brad Williams, a computer programmer and resident here in Glenside, might have devised a new way of measuring human growth, Philly cheesesteak style. Back in October 2015, Brad and his wife gave birth to their son, Lucas. At two weeks old, Williams jokingly took a photo of a cheesesteak next to his son, simply to give everyone an idea of Lucas’ actual size. This led to a gallery of monthly, hysterical, Lucas – cheesesteak photos, which is now known as “Cheesesteak for Scale” on Williams’ Blog . Williams’ hilarious photos, displaying his son’s growth by comparing it to the size of a cheesesteak, has attracted lots of cyber attention. Unfortunately, the photo shoots came to an end after a year when Lucas wanted no parts of cheesesteaks anymore. Don’t be surprised if you see cheesesteaks at your next pediatrician visit, Brad Williams could be onto something here.
