This young man looks so handsome, similar to many young men in high school or college today. I am certain that all the girls in his town were taken with him! He isn’t identified unfortunately, so we don’t know if he is related to the Mearns, Clugstons or Fultons! Note that he is wearing a wide lapeled coat and vest, with an enormous knot in his necktie and pointed collars on his shirt. I believe these are the type of collars that were buttoned onto the shirt and then removed so the shirt could be laundered. The collars were heavily starched, although not as uncomfortable as those popular in the beginning of the 19th century. Those collars were very high and often the chin sat directly on the collar! Our photographer was Squyer (an interesting spelling) at 130 Genesee S, Auburn, NY.
