56-054, a photo by Nick DeWolf Photo Archive on Flickr.

Courtesy of the Nick DeWolf Archives. The beard, the coat, and the tie all point to a time when anything could be combined for fashion – especially in a place like San Francisco where this was taken. Nick took thousands of photos in his lifetime, and his son-in-law Steve Lundeen has taken on the monumental task of digitizing the entire thing. Current there are over 64,000 of Nick’s photos online at Flickr. Most of them were never seen by the public before.

Steve’s been at it now for several years and he’s still going. Check out the entire reel that this tie photo came from:
