First Communion

It is a little difficult to see, but he has a detachable collar and white bowtie. He also wears white long stockings and white high-top shoes. Dark blue suits were more common, but we see a few boys with these white suits. The portrait was taken in the Olan Mills Studio, but we do not know where it was located. It is undated, but looks to have been taken in the 1910s. The dealer reports that it was with a group pf photographs belonging to a man born in 1906. This was probably Arthur himself.
