GAY COUPLE ROGER & FRANK + FRIENDS 1940s-1950s PHOTOS

My friend Maria found this lot of 54 photos of men, which appears to have belonged to a couple, Roger & Frank. The photos date from the mid 1940s to the mid 1950s, and they are all snapshots, except for one 5" x 7." Many are identified on the back and include "us," Newport RI, Provincetown (Race Point), Nantucket, Old Lyme, "at Wally & Noel's New Years," Central Park, Andover, Surfiside Beach, etc.  A rare look at a gay couple when it was taboo.   Listed on ebay ending on March 2nd.   Roger & Frank for sale on ebay

  1. these guys had a sense of humor and a certain confidence about their relationship that was unique given the post war culture and accepted, or rather the expected gender roles... an intimate look into an affectionate, sweet, committed couple which is at one and the same time rare and typical... I love Butch, their cat!
