William P. Herbert Memorial Card 1874-1901

4″x6″ Memorial Card. Private Collection.

This poor fellow passed away much too young at the age of 27. This is the only memorial card I possess but I’d like to get more of them. It was much larger than I anticipated. Some memorial cards have parchment designs and are generally busy. This one’s sober with the black border. Close-up after the cut.

Photoshop 1900. They painted white or gray over the background of the original photo to separate the subject from it, and then reprinted it.
