Unknown Young Man. Dover, Delaware
Dover Delaware Photo
Judging from the notched mount, this cabinet card photo is from sometime around 1895. It was taken by R. C. Holmes, Photographer, Dover Delaware. I have other photos showing the Holmes business address on State Street in Dover. On the reverse of this card has been written in pencil, "Mrs Alvin Jarrell, Felton Delaware". There are still Jarrells in the Felton area of Kent County today. Perhaps Mrs. Jarrell was his sister or aunt or another loved-one.
There is also another name written on the reverse, but I can't uncipher it at all. If you know this young fellow, please leave a comment.
