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)

He was born in Germany in 1846 and his family came to the United States to escape the democratic revolution of 1848. For many years the Bohm family lived in New Jersey where he became an apprentice in a design and engraving business. 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. He was active in Denver society and was a trustee for the water company and the library. Apparently, he loved speed and was involved in racing cars, horses and sleds. SOLD

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.
