Fashion Friday

There aren't many of my really old photos that I haven't featured on Fashion Friday, but I am pretty sure this fellow has not had a turn modeling his outfit.  Our model this morning is Samuel Rusk, my husband's maternal grandfather.  Dapper fellow!  He wears a three piece suit with a very high lapel and only one of just two  buttons buttoned.  Samuel has a very nice mustache.  Don't you just love the ornate settings some of the photographers had for what I believe is called a cabinet photograph.  Taken by J. C. Cone in Farmington, Illinois.  (Click to enlarge)
