This portrait is approximately 20 inches by 20 inches and was in an elaborate frame with wood slab backing but no markings. It came from my grandmother's attic in Helena, Arkansas. I would like to know the possible time period, type of photograph, and if this person is familiar to anyone. I suspect it may have been produced in Louisville KY but am not sure. I am also posting a portrait that is presumed to be her husband.
