What it is:

Photo (slightly less than 4.25 x 6.5 inches) in a wooden frame (I removed the frame for this scan).

What I know about it:

The word Denmark is stamped on the back of the frame.  Otherwise no information about this photo.


It’s hard to know what to make of the word “Denmark” stamped on the back of the frame.  Is the frame from Denmark?  Is the photo from Denmark, and therefore the young man?  It certainly looks possible based on the image.  But “Denmark” is the English name (the Danes call their country Danmark).  Does that make a difference?  Do the pinholes in the border suggest that the photo lived a previous life on somebody’s wall, and that the frame was added later?  Hard to say.  In any case, I think it’s a strikingly handsome image.

  1. You make looking at photos very interesting. You obviously have an inquisitive mind which makes me start to ponder just a bit more. 🙂
