Vintage Garage Black Americana
This is an exceedingly rare early image of a parking garage, or mechanic's shop, with several drivers and mechanics standing around as evidenced by their workwear. Some are in greasy outfits (mechanics) while others stand proud in full-length fur jackets (likely drivers) including one African American gentleman. It is very uncommon to find black individuals in early photos, and even more so in automobile-related images. A true treasure. Photo is mounted to a separate mat board.
An original photo from the era.
6.5 x 8.5-inches; total size including mat 10 x 12-inches.
