As We Were: Sharp Dressed Man

Nothing says confidence or sexy like a sharp dressed man, even if that man lived in the 19th Century.

Formal yet casual and confident is how I’d describe our handsome friend in the photograph below.

1880’s style. Then again, a look like this never goes out of style.

Fortunately this is a cabinet card so the details are clear. Unfortunately neither the subject of the photograph or the photographer are identified. I’ll have to do some research on this one. If I find out anything I’ll let you know.

From the beginning of photography there have always been photographs of people and their dogs. We love our dogs, and they love us back and grab our hearts in remarkable ways that we can’t even describe.

Hot Dead Guys

Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean you were always a stiff.

Here are a few photos from my personal collection (they might be departed, or they might be Vampires. I’ll never tell. OK at least not today.)

Enjoy.
