Circa 1870's Cabinet Card of a Portrait Photo

What a strange picture. His hands seem unnaturally large, but maybe that's because his head is fading away.

Yeah, I think maybe that's because of the angle of the lense on the first photo and then the card is tilted slightly on the 2nd as well.

This sort of reminded me of how the other day I took a Video 8 movie to Costco to be transferred to DVD. I guess people were transferring memories to new formats and technology all the time, like tintypes of folk portraits!
