Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Liberty Bell 23

Dandy Man

I do so love this photo! The carefully coiffed hair, the mustache, the slightly crooked bow tie, and the oversized overcoat all come together for a terrific image of a dandy fellow. The image appears to have been made in the late 1890s or very early 1900s, based on the card type, image size and clothing style. He was a handsome gentleman who clearly liked to present his best appearance. His coat was probably dark gray or black, similar colored vest, and the tie might have been his pop of color against a white shirt. I’m going to say yellow.

Unfortunately, there was no photographers mark, so I cannot tell where the image was made. My guess is probably in the Exeter, NH area considering the bulk of other images in this album are from there.
