Carte view of an unidentified member of the Eastman’s College Band of Poughkeepsie, New York. This was part of an album containing 15 members of the band that was broken up several years ago. Five of those views contained in that album were identified and dated 1864. Of those 5 identified views, all had previous service in various Massachusetts and Connecticut regiments during the war. I would suspect this band member did as well. Standing pose of this band member dressed in his frock. His hand rests on his hip while gripping his cap in hand. He steadies his cornet which rests on the table beside him with the other. This one does have some glue residue along the top and bottom from some old tape. Still a very nice view. Back marked out of Poughkeepsie, New York as all of these views are.
