Does anyone have an idea about when that type of block he's sitting on was invented?

 

I found a couple of places that mentioned early 1900s as a rough time frame, but I don't know enough to know if that's accurate. Or even if what I was reading about (cinder block/ manufactured concrete block) is what is actually in the photo...

According to google, Harmon S. Palmer invented the first commercially successful concrete blockmachine in 1900

I saw that also. The block he's sitting on looks like it probably fits that bill, but I'm no expert and wouldn't be shocked to hear that he's sitting on something other than what it looks like to me.

"People have used concrete since ancient times, but the concrete block was not invented until the 1830s. Widespread manufacture of concrete blocks began in the early 1900s, and their popularity grew rapidly. Since then, they have been used in an enormous number of projects including basement walls, commercial buildings and more."

FWIW...The gentlemen appears to have on a pair of Oshkosh overalls.  Oshkosh clothing company started in 1897 but did not start labeling their bib overalls until 1911

I wondered what those (P-14) were.  Didn't recognize the rear sight.
