Dapper Gentleman in his Sunday Best
by Richard Overy
This Cabinet Card was bought from a Camera Fair in Wolverhampton.
The photograph was taken at South Beach, Blackpool by T. Tufnell Thompson.
This image mesmerized me, perhaps because the subject is staring so directly into the camera lens.
The details such as the gentleman’s pocket watch chain, buttons and hankerchief also add to the photograph.
