This is a CdV from the antique shop in Brainerd Minnesota.
On the reverse it is marked “My Dad.” The card stock is very thin and it has square corners. I believe it may be from the late 1860’s. The cards they used were thinner back then and often the photo was framed in an oval surrounded by vines or ornamentation.
I wonder if the gentleman's vest was left open for a reason..was his arm tucked in there when he walked? I also wonder about the light colored trim on his jacket with stripes near the wrist area of the jacket.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
