Glass plate negative of older man (probably Billy Hofer) seated at table smoking a pipe, 1887

 Item — Box: 1, item: 8
Identifier: MSS 9008 Item 8

Scope and Contents

Unidentified man in cabin, but I think it is Billy Hofer late in life, probably taken in Washington State. When I click back and forth between this photo and #7 [Billy Hofer's meal in his cabin in Cinnabar, Montana], I see that the nose, the ear, the parting of the hair, the mustache, and even the blue eyes are the same in each photo!
