In the days before rhinoplasty was readily available for all who had self image issues, people just lived with their flaws. It doesn’t mean they liked them or didn’t try to change them – the advertisements for shaping implements for women’s bosom and bottom are hilarious and copious – but here is a man with a rather long nose and he proudly sat for his portrait, and apparently gave out the images. Imagine what we would be like if we didn’t have the ability to surgically change our features… It’s quite a compelling thought.
The photographer for this aquiline gentleman was J. T. Blume of Bedford, PA. This CdV is in spot #27 of the Leather CdV Album.
