John Johnston?  (#6)
Ca. 1875, restored 2005 Cliff. Johnston

John Johnston? (#6)

Possibly John Johnston, first surviving son of our Red Robin and Mae.

Photographer: William McConnell of Plantagenet, Ontario, CANADA

The paper holder is lightly embossed making it very difficult to show the pattern.

Dating this image is a bit like playing Sherlock Holmes. The scarf-type tie, button hole in the right lapel, high buttoned collared vest with lapels and bushy beard are indicative of the period 1865-1875.

This image is from an original tintype photograph which was scanned, emailed to me, and restored in 2005. The tintype image measures 1-7/8"x3" while the paper holder measures 2-7/16"x3-7/8". full exif

other sizes: small medium large original
