A DOZEN WORKING MEN HAVING LUNCH : DOGNEVILLE, FRANCE : VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH

This vintage photograph features a group of twelve men posing for their photo as they eat a meal. The men have bowls and cups and one of the men is holding a ladle for a large bowl or pot that sits on the table. The men are dressed similarly. Six of them are wearing berets. These guys are certainly expressive. The gent in the middle of the top row looks shocked and fearful; as if he saw something disturbing. The fellow in the middle of the middle row looks impish. What brings these men together? Perhaps, they are workers at a factory having lunch. They may also be soldiers or even prisoners. An inscription on the reverse of the photo indicates that the picture was taken in Dogneville, a town located in northeastern France. This photograph has excellent clarity.  The photo is trimmed and measures about 4.25 x 3.25 in. The image is in overall good condition (see scans). (SOLD)

After a two year trip to Denver, he returned to New York where he designed copper plates, illustrated magazines, and organized the Palette Art Club. In 1872 he moved back to Denver and established a business offering design, engraving and photographic portraiture.

TWO HANDSOME YOUNG MEN WEARING CAPS

 

This vintage real photo postcard features two handsome young men wearing caps. They are sporting a “dressy casual” look as seen by their open at the top shirts and their collars draping over the lapels of their sport jackets. Writing on the reverse of the photograph reveals that one of the boy’s names is Andre. Unfortunately I am unable to decipher the handwriting to uncover his last name. The writing also appears to include the year that the photograph was taken,  “1942-1943”. This postcard falls in the rare category, it comes from a private studio, had very limited production, is in very good condition,  and has great clarity.

HANDSOME YOUNG MAN : HIS UNIFORM AND MEDAL ARE MYSTERIES TO ME

A handsome young man poses for his portrait at an unknown studio. He is in uniform, but what kind of uniform is he wearing? Is he in the military? I don’t think so. There are no patches indicating rank; nor are there any other insignias revealing a military identity. However, there is the matter of the medal that he is wearing on the flap of his shirt pocket. It certainly looks military to me. Then again, he is wearing a bow tie which argues against his uniform being military issued. The clothing that he is wearing seems appropriate for someone who is spending time in a jungle or heavily wooded environment. His soft hat and the accessory that he is wearing above his shoes may be worn in such a setting. The tied wraps around the bottom of his pant’s legs are something that I have seen worn by bicyclists of this era. Its purpose was to keep one’s pant’s legs from becoming entangled in the spokes of the bicycle wheels and causing a nasty spill. Does the gentleman in this photograph use a bicycle in his work? If so, where is the bike? I have lots of questions, and unfortunately, no answers. I need some help on this one. Hopefully a Cabinet Card Gallery visitor will be able to provide more information about this photo. Guesses are welcome too. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard indicates that the card was published sometime between 1904 and 1918. This vintage photograph has excellent clarity and is in good condition (see scans).
