Milton in military school

What it is:

Photograph measuring approx. 3.5 x 5 inches.

What I know about it:

Undated.  On the back, in pencil, is written Milton in military school / Billerica Mass


This photo seems to have such a soft, dreamlike quality to it that I wonder if it’s maybe an accident of development or a result of aging.  I’m not expert enough to really know.  In any case, I think it has an elegant simplicity to it.  The initials MMBS on his uniform stand, I believe, for the Mitchell Military Boys School of Billerica, Massachusetts, which I gather no longer exists.
