The Father

I purchase this Sixth Plate Ambrotype with the other one I’ve named “The Mother.” They were housed in a double frame that I needed.

This gentleman wears a finely tailored dark suit with a knotted tie and raised collar. The only other distinctive feature in his dress is the long ribbon around his neck falling to the belt line. I cannot tell what, if anything, is attached to the end of it. It may be some sort of regalia associated with a brotherhood such as the masons, but I’m uncertain.

Both images have been tinted with the Robin egg blue color.
