Dapper in a Cap

Cabinet card. Private Collection.

Cabinet card. Private Collection.

There’s something about him. Maybe because the cabinet card is so crisp, but he looks very contemporary. Anyhow, a very beautiful cabinet card from the 1900s. The picture takes the whole card, a good 4″ x 6″.

Can someone enlighten me on the style of hat he’s wearing? Is it a conductor cap? A miner cap? Note the high shine shoes.

Photographer: Unknown. Black card with bevelled gold edges. Both front and back are blank. A shame I will never know because the photographer did a fine job with this one.
