vintage 1932 Gentleman Photograph, Matted Photo, Awesome Frame. Man w/ mustache, wire rim glasses, photographic Portrait by Benson 10/32

Lovely vintage photograph of a very distinguished gentleman sitting on a bench next to a copy of The American Magazine of Art. Perhaps he was a professor? Although I must admit that the first thing that popped into my head when I spotted this was the line from the Beatles' Penny Lane, "we see the banker sitting waiting for a trim." Whatever his occupation, he looks quite dapper with his mustache, wire rim spectacles, and 3 piece suit.

"Portrait by Benson" is stamped beneath the photo on the left; Benson 10/32 is handwritten beneath the photo on the right (I'm assuming October, 1932).

The antique-toned photo is mounted on a taupe & black layered mat and framed in a decorative silvery gray composite type frame (no glass).

Being an o-l-d vintage item, there is the expected wear and tear, mainly being some light staining on the mat, a few small areas where the background portion of the photograph has been scratched, and some chippy paint loss on the frame. All of that just makes this piece one-of-a-kind and unique, not to mention upping the vintage charm factor!

Overall size: 10-7/8" x 14"
