Photo Number 428

Page number 27 is blank..but this photograph was tucked in-between pages 26 and 27.

Is it possible that these two unknowns are closely related..perhaps..then again someone could have just stuffed the odd photo someplace in the album. We will probably never know.
Page 26 and 27 In between
This gentleman’s coat seems to be heavier than most suit coats.. perhaps it was winter.  He had a very wild tie!
This photo might have been taken right around 1900.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from djsheri:
He is probably John Wesley Park/s Jr. I have pictures of his father John Wesley Park Sr. & mother Elizabeth Cusick. The Park family was Scot-Irish and Presbyterian and Methodist. Elizabeth Cusick was Irish and Catholic.

  1. I'd say they could be brothers. Or maybe their mustaches just give them resemblance. Or...maybe it's a father and son.

  2. I was thinking the same thing, father and son - after thinking the same guy after many years... but that's silly. :)

    Did who ever was marking the album stop? Did they get weary of the exercise after a few pages? Or perhaps just get to talking about the good old days and time slipped them by?

  3. I think with out the mustach (when I enlarged the photo) he would look much younger.

  4. I suspect he and the fellow with the gorgeous border on his photo are related in some way. I have found in albums that sometimes it's difficult to put the photo back into the window without harming the page. Perhaps that is the case here.

    Did you also notice that the previous fellow had quite a wild tie? You can tell when you look under his neck - there is a significant dark black & white portion showing.

  6. Could the tie be Tartan? It looks messy enough in a B&W photo to be tartan - possible Scottish roots? Jo

  7. I always wonder how they cleaned those thick old coats.

    My nose starts twitching.
