Fading with time, before we lose the image altogether, here’s a photograph of William Mann Rudd Jr in the 1890s. The edges of the card have that deckled cutwork that was popular at the time. This makes him about 13 or 14 years of age in this image.

I have been quite busy with ahem, cough, work, cough, cough, something this afternoon and have as yet to figure a way to tie this to Sepia Saturday. So, in the interest of time I’m not going to, haha. For great sepia images of boys at the library, books, study, and more, click over to Sepia Saturday.
