This photo appears to have been taken when Joseph Hartman (1870 - 1917) was in his 20s. The original tintype is quite scratched. This copy has been touched up to remove some of the marks. The picture appears to be a companion photo to one taken of his wife, Appolonia Heil Hartman.
This photo was provided by Joseph Hartman's great grandson, William Hartman Jr. (grandson of Leo Hartman). It was originally owned by William's uncle Paul B. Hartman.
