God Bless America


This small glass photo frame is one example of dozens of designs that were available at photomaton studios across America. The areas that appear to be grey in this scan are actually mirrored, making it an eye catching piece of decoration.

The subject of this photo looks to me to be wearing a Canadian uniform, rather than a US uniform but I really couldn’t be sure. Does anyone have any information on the subject?

The frame is 90 x 70 mm and the photo is a standard size booth photo measuring 40 x 50 mm.

    It could be some type of forest ranger or scout uniform?

    He does look like a Canadian Mountie, now that you say that. But still–God bless America indeed.
