This is a beautiful and early photo of early English gentility. Both John and his wife Augusta seem to have French English Norman surnames: Floyer and Gilliat. It was found in Lostwithiel, Cornwall County, England UK. It is a rare, one of a kind antique vintage "ambro" photo of John, taken at his age about 53. The image is somewhat dark in tone, but what a beautiful gift to see his face and early clothing. It is a clearly signed and rare one of a kind vintage piece.
