This is Einar. I love his haircut and the sailer inspired suit he is wearing. The bench he is posing on is a beautiful piece of furniture. I am not sure what to call it ..a bench? If anyone has seem anything like this before please share your knowledge!
The photographer was Brainard F. Childs he was a Premier Photo Artist in the UP of Michigan. He started his studio there in the 1860's in Ishpeming. I think this photo is much later than that probably around 1900, this is a Cabinet Card that I purchased in an Antique Shop in Park Rapids, Minnesota at one of my favorite shops run by a classmate of mine that I have known since the first grade.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
