This photograph is an 8" X 10" and the photo studio hand painted it to make it appear as a color photograph.
This style was very popular during and after the war.
The soldier has blue piping on his garrison cap indicating that he was in the Infantry. The branch insignia on his lapel has been obscured with the gold paint.
His blue eyes really stand out.
Thanks for looking.
