Unidentified youth

This photograph was on the same page opening as the Giffords, so I do wonder if this is their son. They certainly had the wealth to dress a boy in a light colored and prissy suit. He is standing on some sort of straw mat meant to look like grass in a field and the faux wall prop looks more like a funeral monument than a country lane to me!

Here’s the back of the card. Photographer was A. McCormick of Oxford PA. The elaborate decoration on the back mark indicates later in the era, so I’ll date this to the 1890s possibly as late as 1895.
