Yes, a hnadsome, daper fellow indeed. And I agree sometimes I just love the backs of old postcards (more than the fronts).

Very correct! The scrolls and decorative touches to the studio's name are so very lovely!

Actually he is "dapper" Lol. The back of this image is very important for identifying our handsome fellow by narrowing down the area in which he likely lived. From there you work out the time frame from his clothing, hair style and mustache style. Not that I am any good at this but I know that many people are experts.

Thank you!
