CdV for dating please - is he a railwayman?
« on: Tuesday 26 February 19 10:08 GMT (UK) »
I'd be grateful for some idea of the date of this CdV. I only have one other on this particular cardstock and that was dated to early 1870's.

My feeling is that he was a railway man - do you think I'm correct?

Is the curtain behind him artfully draped in order to conceal the base of the head restraint?

Thanks for any help  :)

1860's.
He's not in uniform & his cap hasn't a Co. logo on it. Doesn't mean he doesn't enjoy some sort of official status though.
You are correct about the curtain. Common in the 1860's not so much in the 70's.
