MYER, Charles

Here is a tin-type photograph which I found at the Palm Beach County Fairgrounds in January 2016 at their monthly Antiques Show.

The photo is labeled "Charles Myer" but sadly, there are no other clues like location which would have been a tremendous help.

He may be from the Philadelphia area, or related to someone from that region, as several other photos I got at the same booth were from that area.

The photo was probably taken during, or just after, the Civil War, and the subject looks to be around age 20, thus an estimated birth year of 1845.

I wish I knew a bit more about him. For now, all I can do is post the image and hope someone else recognizes him.
