Why not a silk butterfly tie?

Here this young man wore a silk tie with butterflies under what appears to be an opal or moonstone tie stack. Also the shirt has a nice front pleat below the low rounded collar. Sometimes I wish I could see these pictures in color. I bet the tie was a nice pop to the overall look.

Photogenic teen Mc Bracken with the dark eyes is wearing a mix of patterns with a moon tie stack to bring it all together over the overlapping collar. I give this card a broad window from the 1880s to early 1900s.

The card’s also a rarer shade of pink with dark pink lettering on the front. The back is plain except for the sitter’s written last name.
