From Alan's post in this week's Sepia Saturday I've picked out the theme of sideburns. Perhaps this was not the most obvious of themes but it's one that struck me the most. Also, as I've not posted carte de visite for a while I thought I'd shelve the vintage postcards for this week and share a CDV instead. There's no clue as to who this person is, but he does bear a striking resemblance to Colin Firth ... maybe a long lost relative. The annotation on the back of the card simply reads, For Nelly, 1866.
