Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Liberty Bell 16

Handsome young man with a tiny bow tie

The entire family must have visited Mr Tilton for their photographs, as here is yet another in the same matting with embossing and decorative flourishes. This fellow has the stereotypical hair parted and oiled flat to his head and a high, starched collar. But his bow tie is so tiny! It almost appears to be a decoration rather than a piece of his clothing. I do not know if this was a particular style, or if he just had a small bow tie.

This makes photo #7 by Tilton. To see all the images by Tilton, click on the category Tilton or the category W. P. Tilton Jr over on the right.
