Enjoying a summer day on a log rocking chair. Private Collection.
This gentleman has an easy air of sophistication, dressed in all white with a neat bowtie and open book on his lap. He looks as if he’s escaped the city for a bit of downtime and fresh air. This real photo postcard portrait was taken in the 1920’s.
Here’s a closer look at him.
1910s worker with anvil and hammer. RPPC. Private Collection.
The gent to the right with his pipe in mouth is IDed as Ed Herndon, the handsome worker with the hammer and anvil is unfortunately not. His hands are darker, from the soothe of burning coal? Oh, ladies broke things on purpose with this one. ;)
Ed has a pose I find humorous because it makes him look so impatient. This was taken in the American countryside of the 1910s with an apple orchard in the back, or some field of other fruit trees.
