What it is:

Carte de visite (CDV) mounted into a bluish-gray paper frame (a bit less than 3.25 x 5 inches).

What I know about it:

Photographer is Haseltine of 130 Middle Street in Portland, which I believe to be John P. Haseltine of Portland, Maine.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.

Comments:

That stern, stony face staring out at us makes for an arresting image.  I’m curious about what appears to be a buckle at the end of his tie.  I have a feeling I’m just seeing something incorrectly, but it’s hard to tell what I’m looking at.
