I pulled over so quickly a police officer stopped behind me to make sure everything was OK. (That's alright, officer, I'm just curb shopping!)
At first, I thought it was some sort of Hollywood star- the gentleman does bear a resemblance to William Powell (who was a Pennsylvanian- although not from this area.) They are definitely 1930s/early 40s.
But there is a stamp for a local photographer on the print, so I'm guessing these are perhaps some aspiring local actor, or just a real hep cat.
They are huge- the photos are probably 11 x 14, and the frames 24 x 18. Unfortunately , they have some significant water damage. The one below is probably salvageable, and I can probably still use both frames with a little touching up. But the photo above might be too far gone.
So, any ideas about what to do with them, or who they might be? I love a good mystery!
