Another Mystery from Irene’s Basement Photo Collection

This one is priceless – and there is no indication of who they are. To me, the woman looks much older than the man. Irene thinks she is not pretty enough to be a Giorgio – so maybe she is a Iacobucci or perhaps an unidentifed person from Irene’s mother’s side of the family. Unfortunately I don’t know the date of this photo which would help a lot in this case. Any ideas???

Husband and Wife or Mother and Son???

  1. Mark was looking at this yesterday and dated it at 1890. He thought the unusual pose could have been because of a birthmark (or disfigurement ) on the man’s face. Or, the photographer could have taken artistic license, which was not unusual. He agreed that it was probably mother and son. He also noted the watch key, which meant he had a pocket watch. At that time, a sign of wealth.

    He knows his Photography history with a sizable collection of Daguerreotypes and Tin Types.
