The photo that I have appears to be from around the early 1900's. The gentleman is in a dark suit with a sort of bow tie. He is clean shaven and has a rather large nose.His hair is parted on the right and is smooth. under his picture is the inscritions ENGd by A, H Ritchie. It appears to have been signed by Edw'd M. Yard. On the back is written in pencil Aged 74 yers of age Retired A Comman. ????? du MLN. I'm not sure of the last bit. Are you related to Mr. Yard?? If so how and are you in some way connected to Maine. I would be happy to send you the photo as i do not believe that it is a family member. Also there is another portrait that was in the same folder of a bearded gentleman. It may be the same man as the nose looks similar and it appears to be of an earlier time. He has a velvet colored jacket and a fancy waistcoat with a watch chain showing.
