A bright eyed and handsome young man poses for his portrait in the stduio of C. J. Kratt in Athol, Massachusetts. He has neatly combed hair. Besides his mustache, he is very clean shaven. He could pass for a Gillette razor model. The gentleman is dressed for winter. Note his pocket watch chain. The reverse of the photograph has two inscribed names (see below). The top name is crossed out but looks like “J. Whitney”. The second name appears to be J. W. Holton.

  1. Wonderful, chilly Massachusetts. – It is a beautiful state. Imagine him riding his horse or his carriage in the fresh, brisk air. – I wonder what the chain on his jacket held? Thanks CC!
