Maybe it’s just my impression but this good looking gent has a bit of a conceited expression. Maybe he was just trying to look regal. :) There’s no photographer info and no name. The actual cabinet photo is in terrible shape, but Photoshop helped give this otherwise forgotten gentleman’s portrait new life again.

A beautiful large cabinet photo portrait of a bright looking boy with freckles. This picture came in a large mat protected by flaps. No photographer logo, unfortunately. I was not expecting to see hand tinted cheeks and lips on a portrait from the 30s but apparently it was still a feature photographers offered. His hair cut with the close cropped sides was very popular in his time, along with the pointy collar.
He married a lady named Marian and did well for himself owning two listed residences; one in Winchester N.Y and another in Fairfield Connecticut.
Another Richmond from Waterbury (CT) did die during the war. He was a private with the first name of Arthur D. Was he related to Harold?

Picture perfect “Mac” posing in three-quarter with the brilliantined hair. I’m in love with the grainy and thick paper of those period studio portraits, they are really beautiful in person.
This young man’s expression is so cute, cute, cute. And his bowtie is crooked. He wants to smile, yet he looks like he’s checking out something or is interested in the process.
This picture portrait came out wonderfully, didn’t it?
No name or photographer logo.
I am thrilled to add this card to my collection. It feels like a CDV but the dimensions are narrower and longer (2″ x 5″), and best of all, it came with the original sleeve and envelope, something which is quite rare to find. And it doesn’t hurt that this is a looker!

First, look at this little cutie of a sister! Isn’t she just adorable smiling in her white dress and oversized bow in her hair? She’s standing on a chair to be at her older brother’s height, and he seems so thrilled to have his picture taken.
