Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Since a fine gentleman, Mr So And So. From top to bottom we can see he is nicely put together. Note his tidy and lightly oiled hair, neat mustache, and serious but still somehow open expression. He has very wide lapels on his coat, reminiscent of a tuxedo when paired with the turned down and curved lapels of his waistcoat. His bowtie seems small and monochrome on the white shirt. Although we cannot see his shoes, I would imagine they were clean and polished. He looks altogether put together well, wouldn’t you say?

And as a bonus, check out that table next to him! The carving of the cherub is impressive and not something we see today. The piece of wood used to get such a deep relief must have been generous – modern “carving” is less than a quarter inch deep so more items can be manufactured from the same run of lumber.
