About This Image

This is a tintype portrait of a young man who worked as an American Express messenger with his signed American Express Co., Chicago, Fond du Lac & St. Paul RR messenger pass pasted on the back. The Chicago, Fond du Lac & St. Paul Railroad was only around for 4 years before being acquired by the Great North Western Railway.

This is an extremely rare piece. Tintype has some damage (visible in scan) due to occupational use.
