The Southern Teen

I purchased this Ambrotype on e-Bay circa 2012. He made me think of a teenage Southern boy in the days just prior to the Civil War. I have no idea if he was actually from the South but his clothing left me with that impression. He wears a checkered vest and a simple jacket with few buttons, turned down collar with knotted stylish cravat. His cheeks have been tastefully tinted by the photographer.

The Ambrotype is a Sixth Plate and is fully cased. No markings.
