Woodson Phillips

Let me introduce you to Woodson Phillips!  This handsome gentleman looks very relaxed in this sturdy chair – looks similar to the one my grandmother had her photograph taken in, about the same time – 1915.  He is very debonair with his suit, tie and pin.  The light colored vest is a good choice with the dark suit.

Unfortunately there is no photographer name and address.  But we can still enjoy this likeness of a handsome man from 100 years ago.

  1. My grandfather’s name was Ewett Woodson Phillips and his grandfather was Joel Woodson Phillips. Joel Woodson was one of the few civil war soldiers who survived the sinking of the Sultana back on the Mississippi River back in 1865 when President Lincoln was assassinated. I wander if he could be our kin. A lot of the Phillips family lived down in Rockcastle County, Kentucky back in the 1800’s. Thank you for sharing this photo.
