A Burgess Photo
This is one of those photos where we’d love to identify the person photographed.
This is CDV sizes (carte de visite) and we think it is late 19th century. A rather dapper young man has had his likeness taken. He is smartly dressed with an elegant watch chain displaying a cross motif. His hand rests alongside his bowler hat. We just don’t know who he is.
The back of the card is of interest and helps with dating the photo.
The person clearly visited Alf Burgess’s High Street Studio but of course he may have come from anywhere in the area – not just Market Lavington or Easterton.
Has anybody out there any ideas?
