Below is another photo I received from John Plenzler that is unidentified. It’s possible that this is a photo of Andrew Przybylski and Frances Rochowiak Przybylski. However, I have no verification. The gentleman in the photo below does look similar to the man in the previous post–same type of mustache, looks like the same lanky body type, similar facial features.

Andrew passed away in 1894 and my hesitation to believe it is a photo of him is because of the date of his death. Another hesitation for me here due to the woman. Frances was considerably younger than Andrew–by at least 15 or 16 years by my estimates. Click here for a photo of Frances, who passed away in 1922.

Was photography widely available for everyday photos during the 1880s and 1890s? I have no clue about the history of photography. Did everyday people have the ability to purchase cameras for casual, everyday use during the 1890s? This is not a studio photo or seems even to be a professional photo due to the casual background and the way the image of the gentleman in the photo was cut off to the left

If anyone has any information on this photo or can provide me some insight about the history of consumer-like photography during the 1880s and 1890s, I would love to hear from you. Leave a post here and I will follow up.
