Occupational photograph of two boxers and their lady friends (cabinet card photograph)
Early 20th-century studio cabinet card group photograph, an unusual occupational photograph with boxing gloves strewn in the foreground and a sun-washed group of super cool youths with attitude. Two young women casually posed on a chair, flanked by two stylish tough guys, one with a hat, and a child (somebody's younger brother?) peeking out from behind. Photograph measures 3.75 x 4.75 inches, mounted to 5.5 x 6.5 card. Card is worn around the edges and has two pin holes in the upper border. The photograph has some discoloration from the mounting paste. An interesting composition, shot at an imposing angle that adds to the group's drama.
