Today I share with you four photographs of young men, probably college students or professionals. Most of the time I post photos of women or children. Don’t want the men to feel left out! I would date these photographs from 1900 to possibly 1920. None are carte-de-visite or cabinet cards from earlier times.
Perhaps the youngest in the group, this young man looks very serious. This photo was taken by Crosby Photography, Cottage Studios in Franklin, Simpson County, Kentucky.
This is a postcard photo. What do you think is attached to his breast pocket? Something from a club or organization?
This young man also has something in his pocket, and is attached to his lapel. He is a very handsome young man.
Our last photo shows a young man serious about his books and work. He has quite a nifty bow tie. This photo was taken by Louis Burkart at 11th and Ann Streets in Newport, Kentucky.

Looks like a Bible in the lap of the last pic.
That’s what I thought, but wasn’t sure.
The last young man appears to be reading the Bible. 😊
That book has indented tabs, like on a dictionary.
