Two portraits of young men from South Manchester, Connecticut

What it is:

Two cartes de visite (CDVs), or two CDV-sized cabinet cards, each measuring 2.5 x 4.25 inches.


What I know about it:

Photographer for each is C. A. Hoff of South Manchester, Connecticut.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.



Okay, what the heck, here’s another example of two different people going to the same photographer.  Again, as with my last two posts, these were purchased together in an eBay lot that had other images, too.  But without any other identification, I can’t swear that there is any more connection beyond the same photographer.  Still, as always, it’s fun to compare and contrast.  As with the two ladies yesterday, these men look like they are striking the same pose, presumably at the suggestion of the photographer.  But they look a little more relaxed than the ladies did, showing enough variation in their postures to suggest variation in their personalities.
