What was he thinking!
The photo portrait of a young man is not the subject of this item, but the minimal aspect in regard to advertisement and self promotion is. Believe it or not, what appears to be a small mark upon the reverse of this cdv is the actual back mark of photographer Schoonmaker, Troy, N.Y. His applied back mark measures 5/8″ x 6/8.” What was he thinking, and why did he bother?
Even if it was a brief mental lapse, surely a larger label was the way to go. Regardless of his reasons, it is a neat photographically historic item.
The image is in average condition; this one is for those collection photographer back marks.
