I have acquired an old photo album containing many pictures from the late 1800s. I’m going through the album to catalog the photos with as much information as can be gleaned from them. My hope is to return the album and photos to the descendants of those pictured. Read about the first photos in the album here. **Click on the images below for larger versions**
We’re back at the studio of Edward A. Osborne for Photo No. 9:
Unfortunately, there are no identifying notes on this photo. I think he looks similar to Mr. Fred Young, aka Friend No. 8, but it’s definitely not the same gentleman. The ears at the very least are very different.
Check out the pin he’s wearing (too bad it’s out of focus):
It’s also interesting to compare this shot to the shots I posted earlier, also from Osborne’s studio. This one is so much more crisp, leading me to believe it’s a more recent photo.
Here’s Photo No. 10:
That is quite the facial hair! The other interesting thing about this photo is the upside-down faded imprint from Folsom’s studio. Hmmm… Perhaps this is a copy? Still not sure why the imprint would be upside down. Perhaps it sat up against another photo and the imprint transferred onto this photo? I’ve never seen this before… There are no other markings on this photo.
