A vintage photograph of a captain in the United States Army. I’m not sure of the date of this, based on the straight-shaft / candlestick telephone on the desk, I am thinking maybe the 1920’s? Could be earlier perhaps, even World War I? His coat is hanging up to the side, it looks like West Point coats I’ve seen in photos. The man could possibly be Henry James Mitchell, Sr. of Cohoes, New York, I have assorted photos from the family and Sr. was a doctor at Cohoes Hospital, as was his son Jr. But Jr. would have been too young to be the soldier in the photo. Of course, it might be someone else, but it was with the family photos. In black and white / sepia, the photo measures approximately 6 x 8 inches, it is in very good gently used condition with a crease at the top right corner and a small tear along the right edge.

There are what look to be water spots on the photo – but they aren’t there. They are an effect that I put on when I scanned the photo, to avoid unauthorized duplication. The photo will NOT have the water droplets when you receive it.
