Cabinet card. Portland. Private Collection.
There are some pictures that attract me like a moth to a flame, and this is one of them.
This young man’s face and expression remind me of cherubs in classical paintings of the same period. He also reminds me of a very young Robert Frost.

RPPC. 1922 (digitally erased date at bottom). Private Collection.
Roaring Twenties gentleman. On this photo I like the trousers’ pocket flap peeking from below the waistcoat. This gentleman is rocking his suit and hat, isn’t he? I like the classic 20’s look very much…but if you’re a regular reader of my blog you already knew that.
And the man was a shoe craftsman. A coincidence after the cut.

The relaxed trio. Private Collection.
I could find much information about Frank Newell Libby, thanks to his name and birthdate affixed to the back of this 1/6th plate tintype.
