Keeping with the theme from last weekend, here is a second photo of the same office, except the opposite side of the room. After Googling the company to find out more about them I struck out. I figured I’d see if any of you had any information before I dug deeper. I did however find many more photos of the office, so for some reason it was photographed a lot. The attention to small details in this office are what mostly lack in our suburban office parks. Truly something that is missed.
Take a look at the photograph entitled “The Office, Part II: 1902“:
Detroit, Michigan, 1902. “Richmond & Backus Co. office.” The other end of the room seen here, with a different cast of characters, and a cleaner desk. 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.
