What it is:
Photo measuring slightly more than 4.25 x 3 inches, mounted on a cardboard frame/backing (measuring slightly more than 7 x 5 inches; most of the backing has been cropped from this scan).
What I know about it:
Photographer is A. W. Moore of Vandergrift, Pennsylvania. Otherwise undated and unidentified.
I promised I’d post another photo of our guy from Vandergrift, the guy on the left. I previously posted a photo of him here. I have three photos of him (the third is him solo), and I’m virtually certain they are the same guy. I can’t help but question it, though, because the slight variations in his hair, the lighting, and his facial expression (not to mention the company he keeps) can completely alter the impression he gives off. I find that fascinating, which is part of why I wanted to post more than one. By the way, the damage to the frame that I cropped from the scan includes letters of the alphabet drawn by a child who was apparently practicing penmanship!
