A close up 1872 portrait of EC Rafael who appears to be in his late teens and probably at medical school in NYC. This photo was found in Hampshire County, Massachusetts. Gurney is a famous NYC photographer, known for his amazing portraits. This photo is somewhat light in tone, but still a beautiful image. Scans are enhanced and sharpened to clarity.
We feel strongly this could be him, as we can find no other Rafael family members in census at this time. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.
Size: 2.5 x 4 inches
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
