This man is so handsome. He looks like he stepped right out of Downton Abbey. I have seen a lot of hand tinted photos in my days but, I have never seen such a handsome one. I was so fascinated that I did some research on him. I found that not only was he handsome but the town loved him. His name is on the back. Festus Caruthers. He was born in 1860 in Tehuacana, Texas. He died 1941 in Denver, Colorado. Whoever hand colored the photo did an outstanding job. The colored photo is in great condition with no water damage, holes or tears. Set in its original golden frame. The frame shows some wear that is commensurate with age. The photo measures 2-3/4 inches wide and 3-3/4 inches tall oval. The gold frame measures 4-3/8 inches wide and 5-1/2 inches tall. A hand written note is on the verso give his birth and death date with his wife’s name Julia E Cheek.
