What it is:

Photo measuring approx. 4.25 x 6.25 inches, mounted into a cardboard frame/folder (I have cropped much of the folder from this scan).

What I know about it:

Written in pen on the lower-right corner of the photos is W. R. Smith / 1925.


Once again, I’m fascinated by the choice to pose indoors in outdoor clothing.  But he looks sharp.  And it’s in keeping with my sporadically imposed theme this season of showing people dressed for colder weather, if not actually in snow.

  1. I like the relaxed pose he’s in. I’m not used to seeing portraits of people of his (apparent) age presented that way.

  2. He has a compelling face. Avuncular.

  3. Life of the party, that one. And I like your “uncle” theory!
