Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can ~ #50 Unidentified Bearded Man

There are still a few unidentified photographs in this collection. The photographer of this picture was James A. Mullen (1834-1919) who had a business in Lexington, Fayette County, Kentucky. Mullen established his business in Lexington at about the time of the Civil War.

Doesn’t this bearded man look like someone you’ve seen in a history book? How would you date this picture?

    1. I haven’t had the time to do in-depth reading on Maureen’s blog. I thought I had it on my reader but looks like not. 😦 I have checked some of the unidentified photos through Google Images as she suggests. Thanks Amberly, I’ll take another look at Maureen’s blog.

    1. I wish there was some kind of chart for men’s and women’s fashion by period and by the piece of clothing. There is so much to consider. Not only the clothing but also hairstyle. I was thinking late 1870s but can’t give you a good reason why.
