Charles B. Tripp, Shirtless, 1888
Very unusual cabinet card of Tripp shirtless, surrounded by tools, and a handwritten card in the foreground is printed "1888," though this portrait is dated 1889 on the back. Another handwritten card says "Chas. Tripp, Olney, IL." Photo by Charles EISENMANN. On verso, autographed: "Charles B. Tripp, Woodstock, Ontario, Age 34 ys, Y.A. Grover, July 19-89."
