This CdV from the C. Murray Album is an unidentified Streeter family member. While I don’t know much about men’s clothing, what I do find very interesting is that instead of a necktie of some type, he has closed his shirt with a string tie. Literally, string. It appears he has a vest beneath his coat, then the shirt, then another shirt under that. The many layers would have been useful in cold weather. The string tie makes me wonder if he was less well off than some of his relations.
I cannot find any information on the photographer at this point. I’ll date this photo tentatively between 1885-1890. The gold border on the very edge of the card was popular during this time frame.
