As a hobby, I rescue old photos and have one of a man identified as Julian Sheldon. He lived in Paw Paw, Van Buren Co. MI. The photo was taken in Dowagiac, MI.

I'd guess it to be late 1800s. It's printed as though it's a scroll, so I'm wondering if it was a memorial type photo. They placed an order for a 16x20 to be made of it. (It's written on the back.)

I'd like to locate family to return this to. All I ask is what I paid for it, postage and the cost of a sturdy mailer to protect it. (Postage and mailer usually are $3 or less.)
