This CDV portrait shows William MacFarlane Notman. It was taken in 1865. The date is not on the CDV, but a megative number is and the negatives are archived in the McCord Museum. The number on the portrait (14222) gave the year of the photograph, and the name of the subject. Thephotographer, in fact the boy's father, kept extensive records. The portrait was taken by William Notman who had a studio in Montreal. William MacFarlane Notman also became a noted photographer himself. Here he wears a cut-away jacket, although it is only cut away at the bottom. There look to be seven buttons to securely close thee jacket. He has a small white collar and simple bow. He wears very full knickers. This was an Englis style as American boys were more likely to wear knee pants or long pants at the time. He looks to be about 8 years old. Note the wonderful table. I'm not sure what is on it.
