all that glitters…

hand coloured Ambrotype of a soldier in uniform

Toronto. At the December meeting, Clint showed a second image after the Keystone Eye Comfort series. This image is an Ambrotype (c1850 – 60s) of a soldier.

The image is hand coloured with tiny gilt trim on the buttons. A member of the audience suggested it was a portrait of an Irish soldier. No one could identify him by name or his rank, campaign, etc.

If you think you know or do for sure, drop me a line and I will pass the message to Clint.
