yes, it's nice to see this post!

I do similar photo analyzing at our library in the history files, using "fashion" to narrow down the dates for unknown gatherings. Around this part of the Midwest we didn't have many dandies, mostly worn-out farmers with families, a few high-minded ladies of town, and the odd scoundrel. Nothing like a good portrait to add depth (or cancel out rumors) for a person or tradition.

Wonderful article! I am fascinated with early photography and photographic process as well :-)


Beautiful conservation of image. Keep up the good work.
