Who Am I?!

One problem that comes with processing chaotic collections of photographs is identification. The provenance of many pictures is lost. What you end up with are photos that have neat images and can be identified as Berea pictures, but missing context.

I have included three cabinet cards that have no identification. Cabinet cards were popular between the late 1860s to 1890s. The images depict three interesting individuals, but how they relate to BW might possible remain a mystery forever. Because of the missing information, it begs the question, "Who am I?"

Un-Identified Woman

Cabinet Cards often have detailed backs. Information
about the photographer and where the picture
was taken can be gathered from the back of
the photo.

a beautiful mustache.
