Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

This fellow has such a modern haircut, don’t you think you could see his face in nearly any high school year book from about 1945 on? Maybe not so much today, but a few boys will still be clean cut, I hope! This is another of Ray Jackson’s photos, unidentified unfortunately. He is an handsome young man with high cheekbones and a strong face. He is wearing a cravat style neckcloth and his collar is not turned down, suggesting this photo is from the 1890s. He has his vest buttoned all the way and the chain for his watch is just showing clipped to the top button. We have seen other photos by Jacob Maul. Click on his name under photographers to see other images by him.



One thought on “Unknown man

  1. I agree! I feel as if I could find this guy in my high school yearbook – well, except for the rather somber expression. Then again, there were some unhappy folks in my graduating class. I’ve got some experience dating old photographs; I find male subjects to be the most difficult.
