PORTRAIT OF A SHOESHINE MAN AND HIS POLISH AND RAGS (RARE VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH)

This vintage photograph features a shoeshine man and his polish and rags. The wide eyed shoeblack is wearing a neck scarf and a hat. He is posed sitting in a wicker chair with his polish kit beside him. Note that that the shoeshine man’s boots are not particularly well-polished. The photographer’s name and location are unidentified. An early vintage portrait of a shoeshine man is a rare find. In fact, this is the first such image that I have seen.

  1. Oooh I love this. And even though it’s clearly a studio portrait, from his pose and expression, and the occupational interest, it’s bordering on a street photograph for me. Wonderful find!

  2. what an interesting find –
