Foster Chatfield from Oneonta, New York

What it is:

Photo (2.75 x 3.75 inches) mounted on a cardboard frame/backing.

What I know about it:

Photographer is Van Woert of Oneonta, New York.  Written on the back in pencil is Foster Chatfield.


Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t help but think there’s something slightly funny-looking about this man.  I suppose it’s mostly the theatrical flourish of the mustache, but he has an overall air of somebody trying a little too hard to look grand.  As I was trying to decipher the hard-to-read photographer’s imprint on the front, I thought, “Wait, didn’t I already post a photo from Oneonta?”  Sure enough, from the same photographer even!  Well it turns out to be this couple.  I chuckled, remembering our discussions of their appearance, and thought, “Well, maybe that’s just how they rolled in Oneonta.”

  1. Yes, I see what you mean. Tee,hee.

  2. His ears are a little low and forward, too. What’s in the water there?

    • I don’t know, I don’t know. But I’m sure that it’s all in the past, and that Oneonta is now a shining example of quality living, beaming with civic pride. (I say that in case somebody from Oneonta reads this and rounds up a posse of vigilantes against me.)
