Passport Portraits of Yesteryear no. 44

Continuing the series of passport portraits in my collection.
Peruse and wonder.

On the left is Mr. Patrick Hunt, a 34 yr. old stonecutter from County Wexford in Ireland. This is his photograph in his passport of the new Irish Free State. Within five weeks of its issue in 1928 he has visited the USA Consulate in Dublin and obtained his visa to emigrate to the USA.

On the right is Mr. Patrick Francis Hunt, thirty four years later. He has now acquired an additional Christian name, an American passport and an address in new York.
