The 1920’s detective

The Detective. RPPC. Private Collection.

The Prohibition Era Detective. RPPC. Private Collection.

I brought this photo back to life…it was so torn up and stained, and the focus isn’t quite up to par for a studio photograph, i.e. it has no value in monetary terms…but the subject was worth it!

This photo was part of a lot I got for a few dollars because I was only really interested in one photo, yet when I digitally fixed this one up the gentleman came through.The first thing that popped into my head when I saw him was he looks like a detective or the senior journalist who likes to dig where my bad boy characters would rather he didn’t! Wouldn’t you cast him as such in a movie? The thorn on the side good guy! And this is a gentleman who can rock the mustache with style, don’t you agree?

I love fixing up old and damaged photos, bringing back the otherwise forgotten person back to public view. It feels rewarding in a sense.

RPPC: AZO 2 up 2 down triangles. 1918-1930.
