1870s gaunt teen from Valparaiso, IN

1870s teen. CDV. Private Collection.

This teen has beautiful features yet he appears frail; he’s swimming in his collar. Was he recovering from an illness, or losing weight from sickness? If he were naturally this gaunt I think his collar would better fit him.

Photographer: G. Whipple. Valparaiso, Indiana.
