Two men

Today’s CdV features two men posed seated next to each other (hopefully not on a ratty chair!). I assume by their proximity that they are related. The man on the left appears a bit older than the man on the right. Unfortunately the image quality isn’t good enough to determine much in the way of facial similarities. Be sure to click to enlarge the image – the younger fellow’s trousers and vest are of a spotted wool that was very popular in the 1860s for young men. Both men have vests, neckties and watches.

The photographer was A. C. Platt in Oberlin, Ohio.

    A number of the Hendrickson’s and a couple of the Smouse’s moved to central Ohio. I wonder if they went to college in Oberlin and liked it “out there” so they stayed?

    The gent on the right looks young and he looks simliar to one of the men in previous photos (Striped Tie and Young Man on Ratty Chair)
