    William Dwight Chandler, Form of 1880

    Here is a cabinet card portrait of William Dwight Chandler, a St. Paul's School student from 1875-1881, for #throwbackthursday .

He is shown here with his high wheel bicycle - a very popular item at SPS during that time. #ohrstromlibrary #ohrstromlibrarydigitalarchives #spshistory #iamsps #throwback #tbt #pennyfarthing #highweel #bicycle #highwheelbicycle #williamdwightchandler #formof1880 #concordnh #concord #concordmonitor @concordmonitor #postmaster #cabinetcard #kimballstudio
