The portraits are from the Library of Congress. There is a lot of information there. In some cases the subjects of the portraits have been identified, and a number lived well into the 20th century. For me there is a certain dignity in the portraits. In those days people did not smile for the camera, partly due to the long exposure times but also because portraiture was a formal occasion.
