Yep, he kinda DOES look like a lad who would have been named Willard. The ID was scrawled on a scrap of paper and glued to a plain red silk pad inside a leather case that has a reglued hinge. The sixth plate has stains that occurred during the process. Willie blinked his eyes during the exposure. His pose was different to say the least. He grasped his lapel with his fingers and rested his arm on the top edge of a second chair. The resealed portrait was shot straight on with little regard for artistic excellence and that makes the piece appealing for those of us who like primitive examples. He was taken circa 1849. Teeny mat scrapes are along the bottom and there is also speckled tarnish inside the mat.
