Paul Hoffmann


Hoffman, Peter B.


A young boy, named Paul Hoffmann, is featured in the photograph. This is presumably Paul V. Hoffmann, Albert D. and Emma Hoffmann's son, Peter B. Hoffmann Jr's nephew. The boy's body is facing towards the right side of the photograph, but he is looking at the photographer. He appears to have a "bowl-style" haircut with light colored, possibly blonde hair. Paul is sitting amongst weeds, grass, and other greenery. He is wearing a long-sleeved shirt with a polka-dot tie or scarf that is wrapped around and underneath the collar of his shirt. He is also wearing shorts, tall socks that reach the midpoint of his shins and dark shoes that have straps on top of his foot. He appears to be sitting on a ledge or rock with his feet resting farther down on an apparent rock or ledge. Paul is lighter colored eyes and is smiling with his tongue visible. His hands are resting on his lap and in between his legs. His right hand is slightly blurry from motion. Paul was born June 27, 1918 and died April 28, 2019. The back of the image shows "Post Card" as if the photographer added the photograph onto a postcard.
