A fellow abandoned-photograph-rescuer over at ONE MAN’S TREASURE wrote and posted a fine page about the look of the office in old photographs, illustrated of course with found photographs of office environments with a man at a desk.
A fine idea for a category! I looked through the Lost Gallery collection for things related to work and the office and stacked up a few examples. Since I don’t have as many fine examples of just a man sitting at a desk, I expanded the category to include office equipment and paperwork.
And here are a few with just a typewriter showing but not really an office setting.
Most of these appeared also on a page back in 2010 I called
THE TYPEWRITER - A MODERN ANTIQUE

It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned.
Here are a few.
You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
