Title

George Mallory

Description

Sepia-toned portrait of young man in a suit with a vest and long chin whiskers. His hair is long and piled high in the middle of his head but otherwise combed back away from his face. He wears a large rosette with ribbons and star on the lapels of his coat. Such small 'souvenir' photos of well-known celebrities were popular in the 19th century as well as in modern times. 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.
