The Story Behind the Photograph: Literally



Whilst I can't deny, I do like a nice young man in my vintage photography, I'm by no means immune to the charm of a photo with a really good story behind it. In this case, quite literally. The handwriting isn't the easiest so, in case you're struggling, let me try and render it for you:

"Dear Lizie, Uncle Hubert went to a Ball danced all night rode 4 hours back had his likeness taken don't he look seedy but up in this wilderness you don't get a photographer every day it is  good likeness... all the [best?]"

Wonderful stuff!
