Liberty Bell 17

Liberty Bell 19

Spectacles and mustache

Getting back to the turn-of-the-century portraits, we have a mustachio’d man in spectacles. He has a high, starched collar with the sharp points, a neat bow tie, vest and coat. His shirt probably had buttons that came out. I have a small silver box that was my grandfather’s in which he could store his shirt buttons on his dresser top.

The photo is similar to many of the other portraits taken in Exeter, NH by Tilton but there is no photographer’s mark evident on this one.

    It’s a shame no one labelled any of these – even one of them – could have helped in determining who these haunting mystery faces are…

      Well there was one with a name, but I couldn’t find anything on her. Women are so much harder to research because of name changes, cultural trends, etc.
