THREE ARROGANT NE'ER DO WELLS IN WEST CHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA

by bmarshphd

TUFFSWESTCHESTER_0001The previous owner of this cabinet card described the subjects in the photographs as "thugs",  "ne'er do wells", and "arrogant". We will never know if these are fitting descriptions but that is one of the reasons that collecting and viewing cabinet cards is such an interesting and fun activity. Interpreting these photographs require a knowledge of history, detective work, and psychological awareness. In addition, our interpretations of the photographs are also influenced by our own personalities, experiences, and projections. This particular photograph certainly shows three guys with attitude. They dressed nicely for their portrait. The seated man looks like a tough guy and the expression of the gentleman behind his right shoulder seems to communicate that he is ready for a confrontation. The photographer of this cabinet card is W. C. Bell.
