Forgotten Photo #39 Handsome Dapper Young Man





Here is another vintage cabinet photo that found its way into my hands through an estate sale. This photo is of a handsome young man dressed in a three piece suit. You can see the chain from a pocket watch, he is wearing a brimmed hat and leaning on what looks like a walking stick. He appears to be in early twenties and has a very light mustache. With the magnifying glass it looks like he is wearing a ring on the pinkie finger of his left hand. I can not remember a ring on other photos I have so will have to take a closer look at them. I see pocket watches now will have to be on the out look for rings.


This photo is probably from the early 1900's. There is no name on the back so we have no idea to who this young man is. We do know that it was photographed in Buena Vista Colorado by the C. W. Eardlen photographer.


Buena Vista, Colorado, nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountain's Collegiate Peaks. I went to search for information on Buena Vista and came up with more information at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buena_Vista,_Colorado . Buena Vista incorporated in 1879 and grew as a railroad town serving the local silver, gold, and lead mining industry, with three rail lines including the Denver & Rio Grande, South Park & Pacific, and Colorado Midland railroads. Many of the existing buildings of Buena Vista date back to this era, and were built in the 1880s and 1890s. Sounds beautiful to me and would be a great place to visit in the Summer. No more snow for this girl.


Thanks for stopping by and seeing another orphan photo of mine.
