Look at the dirt underneath the nails on the blonde lad?s hands. Why we all might ask? I certainly don’t have an immediate answer. I don’t think the boys were brothers. But they were certainly close chums to have been daguerreotyped on a sixth sized plate. The mold spiders are quite evident. The fact that both of them moved their handsome heads is plainly noticeable. And look at the stains on the darker complected kid’s jacket. A portrait filled with questions and quite compelling to view. The twosome are kept inside a leather case with a partially torn spine.
