Man of Mystery, 1886

Carte de Viste

The back of this photograph tells us it’s from the Art Photo and View Company of Skaneateles, and that pretty much dates it as being taken in 1886, because records show that photographer Philip M. Goettel came here from Syracuse in 1886 to open his studio, and by 1887 he was back in Syracuse. But it gives me no hint as to who this handsome subject was.
