Today I have a carte de visite from my collection.
At first glance you notice the dress. My guess it is from the 1870’s. At least the silhouette seems to be 1870’s to me. I like that it is a paler color than many of the other photographs I have. I also notice the flower in her hair. I wonder if this is a wedding photo?
Upon my second glance of the photo, I noticed that this fellow has some serious sideburns! I believe the term for these bad boys is mutton chops!
Zooming in on these photos bring in surprising details. When I zoomed in on the dress, I discovered that the fabric has some sort of texture to it. It makes me think of waffles.
I wasn’t able to get anything on the photographer but perhaps one of my readers might…
