Two young men from Princeton, Minn.

What it is:

Cabinet card measuring 4.25 x 6.5 inches.

What I know about it:

Photographer is J. M. Cox of Princeton, Minnesota.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


I am amused that the two chairs are so completely mismatched, and fascinated by the elaborate fringe on the chair on the right.  The floor covering looks more like dead sod than a carpet, but since these old studio photographers sometimes set up fake outdoor scenes in their studios, it might very well be something along those lines.   I wonder what the necktie on the left looks like in color.  And the tie on the right looks more like a bolo tie or something similar, though I’m not sure.  Plus, I’m not sure what the guy on the right has in his breast pocket, since it looks more like paper than a handkerchief.  And, of course, I can’t help wondering who these guys are, and who they are to each other.
