The year i.s 1845. We call him “The Thinking Man”. He just seems to be peering back silently at us. It has now been nearly 170 years since he sat for his portrait. He would be 200 years old today.

What might he have been thinking at this moment? He could not even imagine the world his descendents would live in the 21st century. After his photographic portrait was taken, we can imagine him rising from his seat, adjusting his striped necktie, and stepping into a world of horse-drawn carriages, gaslights, and people who look like they came straight out of Charles Dickens novel. After all, Dickens published “A Christmas Carol” only two years before. Seeing “The Thinking Man” in full-color magically brings the 1840s back to life, just as if they were modern times. If we can do that for a man of Charles Dickens’ times – just think what we can do with your vintage family photos. The dickens, you say!
