The title of this post may initially be seen as a piss-take but I am genuine in my praise of this character. I am as likely as the next person to admire good looks and style, neither of which this gentleman can claim. However there is something so solid and warming in this rough, ruddy face that I really do find him lovely and wonderful, despite his lack of the more superficial attributes we so often look for in a person.
If it wasn’t for the era of this photo, (I am guessing 1940s) I would have said the item in his pocket was a mobile phone. Is it a clue to his occupation? I am really not sure what it is.
This is a standard sized photobooth photo from the USA, that measures 38 x 42 mm.
