Quick, somebody give this sad Victorian gent a hug! Doesn’t he look like he needed one? Maybe he missed his love. What a romantic with his bouquet in hand! He had very pretty eyes too…and the bowler fits him just right.
This is a very beautiful tintype too, the darks are satin and the lighter areas matte. The scan is not doing it justice.
