Viewmate 1747 - Clothing?Date? #general


Carleolady@...
 

Dear people,

Recently there was a discussion on clothing and how it may indicate where
the person lived or perhaps religious affiliation. Since I received no
responses the last time I posted this photo on viewmate, i thought I'd
try again.

The photograph is my gggf Ansel Asher SHEININ >from Mogilev or perhaps
Ukraine--farming colony. He was born in 1825 (about). Can someone offer
any ideas? Also, I'd like to know what the object is that he is leaning
on. Thanks very much.

files - VM1747

Please respond to me personally unless you think the info might be of
general use.
