ANtique photo handlebar moustache gentleman with fraternal pin & handkerchief wireframe glasses INTERESTING history

Quantity available: 1


This Victorian gentleman wears his hair parted and sports a wide handlebar moustache. The photo is from the late 1800's and if you look closely you can see some sort of shield shaped fraternal pin in his lapel.He wears rimless wire frame glasses which gives him some sort of accounting feel to his character.  He carries a folded handkerchief in his pocket and he seems to be quite on the small side. His frame is almost that of a young boy. The photo is in the original cardboard relief frame from  Belmont studio, 847 East Belmont, Chicago. What is interesting about that address is that George Burke, official photographer for the Chicago Cubs, White Sox and NFL’s Bears  shot many famous photos out of that studio. My guess is that in the late 1800's and up it was a studio for many famous photographers who rented that space on 847 Belmont. . One of the photos lets you see the shiny metallic ( called silver gelatin) almost negative look which helps you see that this is the type of photos from a particular period.  This cabinet card photo with frame measures 7" x 5" and is in great condition.   VintageSparkles offers Layaway on all our pieces regardless of which site it comes from.All layaway payments will need to be in the form of a check or money order only.
