THE BROTHERS HOLT. According to the paper in the bottom of the case, they were John, William, and Henry, taken in 1857 in New York (City?). Their father David Hemingway Holt had taken them there. Thanks to a bit of research, I found that the Holt family was from Southington, CT. If they did go to NYC, it must have been quite an adventure for the three boys! The quarter plate ambrotype is a good one and comes in a worn plastic case. Unfortunately, some cracks have appeared in the ambro?s emulsion. Their cheeks are a hair tinted.
