A HIGH PLATEAU. Sparse hair still grew reluctantly on top of the tight-lipped fellow’s skull while the back of his head was fringed with a mane of salt and pepper growth. The loosely composed bust portrait taken in sixth plate size has been resealed. Brightness from high overhead bathed the senior citizen rather well. Outstanding contrast and deep depth are perfectly evident when the loose leather case cover is removed. High up the gent’s jacket sleeve, just underneath his left shoulder a large fly was waiting to also be exposed! Faint brown dots and minor mat marks can be seen. The leather case is apart.
