Young man in picture frame


Posted by Picasa

This young man was hidden in a picture frame I bought at the same tag sale where I bought the photo of the young girl. I can't date his picture as accurately as I can hers because men's clothing styles don't change like women's do, so his picture could have been taken any time.

I fancy the two have a family resemblance, but that may just be my overactive imagination. Anyway, his picture was turned face inward within a picture frame and I only discovered it when I took the picture out to insert one of my paintings.

I must make a mental note to leave all my photographs to a library if I don't want strangers buying them or worse, discarding them.

Hi Miriam

I've done some lurking through old photos & i think that the young mans photo could be dated from between '79 to '82, the haircut, tie & suit lapels seem to fit that time peiod. I couldn't make out if he is wearing a suit vest, but if he is that's a fair estimation of the timeframe.

Cheers

Carpe

I thought I spotted a vest on the left. The time seems about right to me. In the sixties and early seventies men wore long sideburns.

Pity nobody wanted to take his picture home.

I once saw a sizable online archive of old photos of unknown people, can't locate it at the moment. I've also seen old photos of unknown people--maybe cartes de visite--for sale in antique stores. Sobering to think that someday that may be all that's left of me...
