Man from Racine

What it is:

Carte de visite (CDV) measuring 2.5 x 4.25 inches.

What I know about it:

Photographer is T. Luck of Racine (presumably Wisconsin).  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


Handsome, featuring great mutton chops.  But such an intense face, with eyes like a fiery preacher, or a hypnotist.  A face that’s both enticing and unsettling, which, of course, makes it fascinating to look at.

  1. They might have used him as inspiration for the latest Mr. Rochester!

  2. Agreed enticing and unsettling. Those mutton chops are amazing. Unsettling too. 🙂 Great image!

  3. It’s Aiden Quinn!

    • Ha! It’s so funny who we can seem to “recognize” in these old photos. I have one that I think looks just like Kirsten Dunst. I’ll have to post it sometime.

  4. Wow, those eyes are so dramatic and extreme. He looks like he could win any arguement.

  5. Aidan Quinn, indeed!

    Dang. Those mutton chops are daunting. I want a whole facial hair series from you some day…

    • Yeah, there’s some brilliant facial hair in some of the photos I’ve posted. Maybe I’ll have to create a special category so that you can pull them all up with one click.
