PORTRAIT OF A DAPPER OLDER MAN WITH AN EXQUISITE MUSTACHE IN GRENOBLE, FRANCE

This cabinet card photograph features a dapper older man with an exquisite mustache. The gentleman’s impressive mustache may be one of the widest mustaches that I have ever seen. He has a sparkle in his eyes but it is impossible to ascertain if he is smiling because his lip sweater is blocking our view. The photographer of this cabinet card portrait is A. Michel. He operated a studio in Grenoble, France. Grenoble is in the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region of southeastern France. It is known as a center for winter sports. Advertising on the reverse of the cabinet card indicates that Maichel won a medal at an exhibit in Marseille in 1897. The gentleman in the photograph is identified on the verso as Gabriel Lucas. This portrait was likely taken circa 1900 and is in excellent condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG FRENCH SOLDIER IN GRENOBLE FRANCE (CARTE DE VISITE)

This carte de visite portrait captures a uniformed soldier with a handlebar mustache. The photographer of this cdv image is the Leon studio in Grenoble, France. Grenoble is located in the southeastern section of France and is at the foot of the French Alps. It is my guess that the soldier pictured in this carte de visite served in the French military. An illustration of Leon’s gallery can be seen on the reverse of this cdv.
