This vintage photograph features a young black boy and a middle aged white man sharing a warm moment and a laugh. The pair seem to have a close relationship. Both are smiling and seem very relaxed as they experience their interaction. The child is wearing a shirt that is much too large for him. Perhaps the shirt is a hand-me-down from an older brother. The boy is barefoot. I am very curious about why this man and child ended up together and in conversation when this photo was taken. They appear to be standing in a field but their location is unidentified. The photo measures about 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and is in excellent condition (see scans).

  1. The man bears a striking resemblance to the actor Pat O’Brien (1899-1983)!

    • Indeed, such a resemblance that this fan of classic cinema believes it’s likely this man is the actor Pat O’Brien. Perhaps one of his descendants may see this photo and possibly confirm/add more information.

  2. Maybe a doctor & his little patient?

  3. Or a missionary, perhaps?
