Photo Details

Photo has been cropped. Original is about 2 3/8 x 4". It shows head and shoulders of a man in his late 40s or early 50s with a graying trimmed beard and white hair. He is wearing a suit and an old-fashioned tie. Photo is with others, some of which are marked 1870s and 1880s. On the back it says, "Gillmore Brothers, Photographers, Geneva, NY, Negatives preserved."

Mystery: This photo and numerous others were found in my grandmothers effects. She shared many photos but not these. We suspect they are from an album probably rescued by an uncle who pre-deceased Grandma. Most of the photos are unidentified, but probably all related. One other that does have a name is Mrs. Jane Frazer. These are not names in my family. Most of the photos were taken in Rochester and Geneva, NY, St. Louis, MO, and Beaver Dam and Waukesha, WI.
