Mon Papa with Molly, Sunday afternoon a walk with his dog. He has taken off his waistcoat, his tie and his collar. This is in the 1930's.Today he would wear chinos, an  open shirt and  perhaps a jumper.



Oh, Mein Papa war eine wunderbare clown...

  1. Casual photos are good ones to treasure. I still marvel how someone kept a suit clean, (free of dog hair too), and sorted out the collars, cuff links, ties, and waistcoats.

  2. Mike Brubaker; everything was kept in wooden boxes, cedar or sandalwood. Suits were brushed and aired, dry cleaned. A lot of work to keep everything spick and span.

  3. An interesting pose, and I love photos of people with their dogs.

  4. What a handsome man he is too. There's nothing more inviting, than a man and his dog photo in my opinion too. Besides, the striking pose, ( of your father here) and Molly is such a beautiful dog as well.

  6. And he is just clever enough not to show his braces. I had not heard Lys Assia before; Herb Alpert's trumpet version is the Oh Mein Papa that I remember,

  7. Loved the video and it is a nice photo of your Papa and Molly. I think it is good that men can be more casual now when walking the dog.

  8. It is fun to look back and see how people dressed. They'd now think us all such slobs.

  9. It's a great picture - interesting how your father can manage to avoid looking at the camera, but the dog can't

  10. A lovely image with your father in a very self-assured stance.

  11. I like how you noted what is missing in the picture and what the modern-day dress would be.
