Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past


This fine looking gent was photographed by Guterkunst of Philadelphia, PA. This photo dates from the 1870s I believe. The corners of the photo are evenly rounded, which was not done in the 60s. The photo is located in slot 2 of the Leather CdV Album.

    He looks like the man you posted previously – possibly even the same man.

    :) 712 Arch Street, Philadelphia is a couple blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell and on the edges of what is Chinatown.

    Cumberland, Maryland and Philadelphia were well connected by rail back in the 1870s.


  2. I was thinking the same thing as mousleyka. Could be this man’s album and the photos are 10 years apart in the making?
