PORTRAIT OF A HANDSOME AND STYLISH TOP HATTED DANDY IN MEADVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA

The gentleman featured in this cabinet card portrait is truly a dandy.  Like the definition of “dandy”, he appears to place much importance on physical appearance, good grooming, and fashion. Dandies tended to use refined language and engage in leisurely hobbies.  Another supposed characteristic of dandies is that although they exhibit an appearance of nonchalance, they were actually very self absorbed. The gentleman seen in this photograph is handsome, fashionable, and well groomed. Note his top hat. The photographer of this image is A. R. Fowler. He operated a studio in Meadville, Pennsylvania. This cabinet card has gold beveled edges, excellent clarity, and is in excellent condition (see scans).

A minister, wearing his clerical robes and holding a prayer book, poses for his portrait at the A. R. Fowler studio in Meadville, Pennsylvania.
