Vintage Photos of people and watches

Post by koimaster » January 17th 2020, 10:53am

Was checking a site https://www.shorpy.com/search/node/wrist+watch which has old black and white photos (some color as well) and decided to look for watches. Posted are a few photos I found at that site. I made this a sticky so everyone can post vintage photos with watches or clocks in them.

September 1942. "Civilian defense. Fire prevention. The careless smoker causes more fires each year than any other person in the country. He is to blame for 87,000 separate 1941 fires, which resulted in the loss of many lives and the destruction of 14 million dollars of property. Whether he falls asleep with a lighted smoke or is careless in the disposal of burning cigars, cigarettes, or matches, he is always a menace." Office of War Information.

Washington, D.C., circa 1920. "Selinger window, 820 F Street N.W., sale of Army wrist watches." Wristwatches, which saw widespread use during the First World War as "trench watches," were entering the mainstream as the era of the pocket watch began to wind down. National Photo glass negative

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

And the hours I waste perusing watch photos exponentially increases...

I like old pictures.
They make me feel young.
