Man With Stick Pin

About this object

This tintype is a portrait of a young man. He is wearing a tweed coat. His tie features a horseshoe-shaped stick pin. These pins were traditionally worn by a gentleman. As early photographers attempted to tell stories in their photographs this could indicate that the subject had an interest in horses.

One of a set of 5 tintypes that are believed to be of the Whittaker family of Moggendoura.
