This vintage photograph features an elderly man and woman doing something unusual. What’s happening in this image that is so unusual, you might ask? The odd thing about this photo is that the old couple appear to be holding hands. This is not commonly seen in photographs of this “no public displays of affection” era.  The man has a wonderful walrus mustache. He looks dressed up in his three piece suit. The woman is bundled up in her outfit as if it is winter. Both are wearing hats. It is difficult to determine if this photograph was taken inside or outside of a photo studio. This photograph measures about 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. I think it was taken outside. He looks as if he’s wearing his best suit, suitable for a solemn funeral. She appears ready to work in her garden. Note the toes of their shoes. Either they pray a lot, or they kick something around, like rocks on a dirt road. 🙂

  2. Thanks for your comment. You continue to be amazingly observant. The scruffing on the toes of their shoes may mean that they have been chronically kicking the can down the road. Nah. Never mind, they don’t look like politicians.

    • I had to laugh because growing up I was noted for being UNobservant. Maybe it was because my head was filled with stories.
