This photo is 16 x 20. The 3rd pic is of the back panel of the frame.
I have never taken the back panel off the frame. [Could be hidden treasures or documentation?]
The frame has signs on gold 'colored' paint.
It belonged to my Grandfather. He was an electrician & he wired the local theater for sound, back when the "talkies" arrived. He also served in the US Navy during WWI. He passed in the late 1960's. I've had this photo since the mid 1970's.

My questions:
Age/Year taken ?
Photographer ?
Value ?

Thank you.

Dave

    It looks more like a print than a photograph.

    Look at the bottom edge for any printing.

    The frame and size was typical of the time period of about 1915- 1930.

    I should have said it looks more like a "lithographic print" than a photograph.

    Thanks for the input, Scott. This is one of my prized possessions.
