Mutton Chops and Smiley Man


Great faces on these two, eh? They must have been great friends to squeeze into a booth together. I wonder if they made the strip for their wives whilst on a trip to the city? They certainly look like country blokes.

This photo comes from the USA and is undated.

  1. Those are fantastic whiskers. In the seventies there was a British soap character called Amos Brearly. He supposedly went to Spain but I think you’ve just found him.

    Love those two. They remind me of characters from my childhood.

    I think they might be with their wives. The guy on the right seems engaged by someone out of frame. Probably a trip in to the big city (however big that might be to have a photobooth) or maybe to the annual agricultural fair. Were there mobile/travelling photobooths?


    • Yes, there were a lot of travelling booths at carnivals and such. Maybe the missing photos (there would have been a least three others) were of the wives.


    • Wow, I hadn’t thought of that. Great theory Sue. I hope that is true but will probably never know for sure.


    • As with many of my photos I feel that I know these two. They have both got great appeal as characters.
