The unidentified subject of the CDV above has what could be considered a classically handsome face: strong jaw and mouth, slight mustache, straight nose, evenly spaced eyes, set into a well shaped face, not too wide & short, not to long and thin. His clothing appears to be nicely made, and while I don’t understand why his necktie looks like it is touching his bare neck in between the collar points, I do admire it’s pattern nonetheless. His hair style is what caught my attention, though. What was once very popular and considered to be stylish is now an interesting “flip” of the hair on top, with some bushy fronds on the sides. It was probably oiled to death, too. He looks like he needs a wash, shave and a haircut, to me. But c’est la vie, he was probably considered to be just “the thing” to the ladies in his town!
The photographer of this paragon of the past was Stanley, of Lewiston, ME.
