Old Photo,Telephone Co Men on Pole, Lansing, Michigan, Picture and Description:

 290411207202972960 Old Photo,Telephone Co Men on Pole,  Lansing, Michigan,

Our reserve is the opening bid. PLEASE NOTE: We have another Telephone Company photo from Lansing, Michigan listed. It is a photo of the the Michigan Teephone workers posing in front of the company building. This is a fun and fascinating antique photograph. And what a crazy idea! Nine Michigan Telephone Company workers are perched on top of a telephone pole. Ten others are hanging from the side of the pole. What a great image! Three men in suits are below posing in front of a storefront. They must be supervisors. The back is scripted "Taken at Lansing, Mich. 1900, Ed Owens, Foreman. The photo is a brownish color with a golden cast and has good contrast. It is just a little bit light. The photo is mounted onto a mat that is 8 by 10 inches. The actual photo is 6 5/8 by about 4 3/4 inches. The photo is in very good condition and if you turn it to catch glare you see a little silvery sheen from the old photo printing process. There is also a bump at the edge of the photo itself at the right edge, almost half way down. With glare and also at an angle, you see a little "outie' bump at the upper right corner tip area with a very slight and very short crinkle. The back has an inward dimple at this area. The mat has very bumped corners, with the lower left missing a portion, and there are tack holes in the top two corners. There is a tear at the bottom edge of the mat just to the right of the middle. It extends into the mat, but not into the photo portion. There is a small stain on the mat near the upper right corner area. The photo does really look good. We prefer to overstate rather than omit. What a great early photo of Michigan Telephone Company workers posing on a telephone pole! Please email questions. We pack with great care using heavy cardboard and will COMBINE PURCHASES to save you shipping costs but you MUST WAIT for our invoice to receive these savings. Please email questions. The photo is a brownish color with a golden cast and has good contrast. It is a little bit light. Based upon our monitor setting, our photos below are slightly darker than the actual photo. There are less reddish tones than seen below.
