This mustached and goateed captain has turned over the collar of his frock coat to reveal a high white starched shirt collar and bowtie, and he is also showing off a nice pair of double-bordered captain’s shoulder straps. The oval photo has excellent clarity and tones, showing him seated and from the waist up. The photographer’s name and address are pre-printed between the two oval gold border lines on the cardstock mount, reading E.S. Walker of Columbus, Ohio, and we are thus likely looking at an Ohio officer.

The photo is housed in a period cross-stick frame with its original backboard, but the nails are new and it may simply have been placed there for display by a collector. The photo is in very good condition. A couple of short, light scrapes at top and upper right were colored in, as well as one short curved mark between third and fourth button from the bottom of the officer’s coat. None is particularly bothersome. The mount has just a few minor stains. The frame overall is about 10 by 12 and the oval albumen itself about 5 by 7 inches.

The clarity is great and the officer looks determined. He might be recognizable to an Ohio collector, but he has great presence nonetheless.
