Here's a Confederate soldier posing with his shotgun and his hound dog. Notice the gold filigree frame around the picture. These were common for the time period and I have a couple in my collection. The frame had two pieces, held together with small hinges. The frame could be closed for protection of the photo while traveling. When opened, the frame could stand on its own for display of the photo.
The original photo has been digitally "flipped" to show the subject properly (and not the mirror image that wet plate photography created).
Comments and disagreement are welcome. If you are civil to me I will return the favor. Let's have a conversation.
I create a lot of original graphics that I post on this site and anyone is free to use them with or without attribution (although links are always appreciated). The graphics I create are signed "Stogie."
