Photo Number Fifty-Five



Another bow tie kind of guy..this one from a much earlier time. I love this guys hair..it seems to have a life of it's own.  I think this is a farm kid..all dressed up in his best duds..who knows?
I will date this one about 1900..I am not getting any better at these dates..and I do so appreciate your input and help with the dates!
This was taken  by DW Bolton at Northwood, IA  I couldn't find out anything about the photographer.
Thanks for dropping by!  Come back again:)

  1. The date may even be a little later. Maybe 1915 - 1925. His hairstyle parted down the middle and clothes remind me of old photos of my father-in-law and how he looked in 1922. He is a good looking kid.

  2. If it was women's clothing I could guess but I know nothing about men's fashions. Good looking boy!

  5. Lovely charming photo. He looks like an ancestor of the Jonas brothers, at least the hair cut!

  6. I have a picture of my great aunt's wedding in November of 1904 and all the men's hair was parted down the middle like this. It must have remained 'fashionable' for awhile.

  8. I found this reference to ol' DW in the Annual report By the Iowa Highway Commission dated 1913 which lists payments made for supplies.

    "Dec. 22, Educational Department - D. W. Bolton, photo plates. $8.10"

  9. Do you suppose the photographer..DW Bolton took scenic photos for the highway dept? $8.10 was quite a bit of money back in 1913:)
