    Pretty sure just a guy but want to rule out a known guy. Looks a tiny bit like a known German painter turned public orator (among other things), or is that just me? I mean it’s clearly not him but I see a bit of him there.

    Edit: whoops. Photo here now. 7B44F0DE-ECCE-4942-9D16-B378F4B6A99A.jpeg

    I don't see the German painter guy there.

    This guy looks like he's been in a brawl or two, but he also looks tired.

    A good start for a writing prompt or two....

    Looks like a 'Mustache Pete'-a Black Hand guy who just got off the boat from Sicilia.

    You don’t want to see that black hand! I’ll be on my best behavior whilst he’s around.

    What is the photo in? Looks like a regular photo brooch to put a photo of your loved one in.
    It may be hard to believe this gent could be someone's loved one, but he could have been the sweetest man to his wife and kids.;)
    Countless photo brooches were sold in the late 19th and early 20th century. So just a guy, imo.
    You don't mean the Austrian guy with vile ambitions, do you?!:nailbiting:
    His face wasn't as round, and he would have been a younger man with more (and darker) hair at the time this photo was taken. His moustache was also different, although it may have started out looking like this one.

    Yup just an average photo brooch. Just wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing anything. Clearly not the vile ambition lad but I still see him in there when I look at it for some reason. I wouldn’t doubt the sitter was a swell fella.
