Our subject never smiles, bears a hand on his shoulder, is asked to take off his hat and wears soiled work clothing while his attendees are dressed. These were clearly taken for the benefit of the other two men, be they doctors or tourists. It is unclear his malady, though his face and head suggest something akin to accelerated aging or hydrocephalus. Three snapshots measure 2 3/4 x 4 3/8”, two pasted and one with a corner nick. Found at a farm auction outside of Columbus Ohio, no history is known.
