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.
