I accidentally put photo 26 before 25, so here is photo #25 from the Leather CdV Album. This pose is similar to the Just Dandy photo of last week, in that the man is holding onto a chair and you can see the base of the positioning stand behind his feet. Also, he looks rather formal and a bit uncomfortable while trying to look casual and relaxed. His frock coat was a popular style in the 1860s and beyond. This is a style we sometimes see men wearing in weddings today. Much of today’s men’s formal wear flashes back to the every day styles of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. We are so casual these days! I saw a TV personality wearing a three piece suit recently and I hope that style comes back into fashion, it is just so dapper.
No photographers information was included on the back, so this will fall into the Unknown category.
