C. Nuthrop, Union officer

Title

C. Nuthrop, Union officer

Description

Sepia-toned portrait of an officer wearing the uniform of a Union officer in the Civil War. He wears frock coat with a double-breasted 14 button front over pants and shoes. His hair is curly and parted on the side and he has a goatee. He stands with one hand on a classically styled pillar and the background behind him is romantically rural. This photo was included in a collection donated by a Forest Grove resident, Ruby Bamford. The Bamford family was from England, but lived in Illinois during the Civil War. They settled in the Gales Creek area in the early 1880s. It is not known whether the photos belonged to the Bamfords or to Mrs. Bamford's natal family before their donation.
