A Likeness or Two

One of the wonderful but nevertheless frustrating things about the photographs in the Welsh Album, are the number of likenesses between people. Sometimes it might actually be the same person, or sometimes just a close relative, but unless one or other photograph is clearly labelled it is hard to establish the relationship.

Take the gentleman on the cabinet card in my last post (Aunty Jane). On the opposite page is a carte-de-visite of a similar looking man who appears to be some years older. There’s no identification though, just the position of the photographs in the album hinting at a connection.

Brothers? Cousins? Or perhaps the same man?
