Title

Cabinet Card of a Gentleman

Date

ca. 1900

Description

The sitter, whose photograph was taken at Schultze located at 297-299 Fulton Street in Brooklyn, wears what is probably a matching three-piece suit in a tattersall plaid (the trousers are not visible). The silhouette is barrel-chested, which was common in the first decade of the twentieth century. His bushy moustache is another giveaway of the time period. At this time men wore stiff detachable collars which the sitter wears with a striped shirt.
