Mechanic Falls, Maine: O. C. Bridges, [after 1886]. Scant 5 x 3.75-inch print on a 6.5 x 4.25-inch mount, photographer’s stamp at the foot of the mount. Some minimal wear, browning and light soiling; in fine condition. Item #19525
A fine image of a presumed street evangelist, very much in the American grain. Per an 1891 history of Androscoggin County, Bridge took over the Mechanic Falls photo studio in 1886; this portrait would appear to date from that era.
