Outside the house

Today’s photo is a mounted snapshot and the bristol board has seen better days. However, the snapshot itself is in good condition and features a black man in a suit and hat, standing next what is very obviously a house. It’s clapboard with a large casement window. The man’s suit coat is buttoned once up high. In the nineteenth century this could be used for dating the photograph, but in the twentieth century I’m afraid I am ignorant of men’s fashion trends. I’m guessing at the 30s for this photo. Photographs were still being mounted but snapshots were more available.
