Shorpy Saturday – Office Visit: 1902

By Jeffrey Buck

I apologize for being absent for the past couple of weeks. I’ve had a few other things with work taking up much of my time and unfortunately haven’t been able to produce any posts. I’ve realized how many of you enjoy seeing the photos and look forward to Saturdays, so thanks for all of your support. Most of the photos I have used have been of architecture so I thought this is sort of a nice change. It’s a glimpse inside office life. I really enjoy the clothing choice of both gentlemen and the furniture throughout this 1902 space.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Office Visit: 1902“:

Detroit, Michigan. January 1902. “Richmond & Backus Co. office.” Our third peek behind the scenes at R&B — printers, binders and “office outfitters” — reveals a cozily cluttered workspace enlivened by a display of “faces you have’nt saw.” 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.
