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)
