1930s Steampunk Photograph of Man in Sunglasses Drinking Soda
Regular priceSale price
Here we have a rare large silver gelatin print photograph of a gent in Steampunk sunglasses drinking soda out of an old bottle. Typical! Seriously, thing this is bizarre and really cool. Unusual pose, killer garb, off kilter angle. It's got it all in my book. I can't get past the sunglasses. This gent had a six pack in one hand and a permanent strut.
The rare unusual photograph is titled "Keeping Cool" (lower left) and signed by the photograph W.D. Rusk (lower right). i have a few other photographs from the same collector's estate. I'm quite confident this was a submitted photograph for consideration in the 1939 World's Fair. (One of the photographs I listed won the competition and was exhibited).
The entire framed piece measures about 22 1/2" tall by 18 1/2" wide. The silver gelatin print is about 10 1/2" tall by 13 1/2" wide on its own. There is some discoloration spots on the matting, especially in the lower right.. There is slight wear throughout. The frame looks cool but it is not the highest quality. You may want to consider upgrading. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
