Antique Portrait of a Young Man from 1884

Antique Portrait of a Young Man from 1884

Another thing I have noticed while scanning the lot of antique photographs I told you about last week is that most of the portraits are of men. Also, it seems that it was very fashionable to give these portraits to friends and people you admired.

Today’s picture was taken by E.J. Kildare & Cia at Palacio de Artes around April of 1884. Now I wonder who was this Hilario Gutierrez who received so many of these portraits, who can help with additional information?
