Man with an Arm in Sling and Possible Missing Hand

Click photo to view larger image.
Man and his young daughter pose in this sixth plate tintype. He has his arm in a sling. It is bandaged from at least the elbow down and appears to be missing his hand, unless the bandages are covering it. Hard to say if the hand is present or not, but no matter what - he is badly injured. Exceptional study of the pitfalls of 19th century life. Contained in a leather case.
