Check out this handsome gent. No name is recorded, but the photographer’s logo on the back of the card shows that the portrait was taken by B. Billian in Doylestown. Someone more familiar with historic fashion trends might be able to come up with a tighter age range based on his apparel, but based on the photographic process (a carte de visite) I’d offer a date of around 1870.
The photographer’s logo on the back:
Lizzie Billian, daughter of Benjamin Billian is buried in Doylestown Cemetery. Sge dies in 1881 aged 4 months of whooping cough. Lot owner was Mary Groff. There are no other Billans buried here.
Thanks Kat! Someone else just told me that Billian was only in town for a few years before moving to Manayunk.
