Photo Number 143
The older guy on the left has a floppy bow tie and a pocket watch chain. The watch chain is a Single Albert or a Half Albert, these were always worn with the T going through a buttonhole. The watch chain serves as a fob to grab the watch from the pocket and also prevents it from falling out and breaking or getting lost. Pocket watches were fairly expensive.
The younger man on the right has no pocket watch visible, but he has a regular bow tie and a silky looking handkerchief in his pocket. I will date this photo at 1910.
This photo has no photographers markings or names on it. Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
