Carte-de-visite of Eugene Dowe shown in bust portrait. He faces the camera directly and his hair is parted on his right side and smoothed down on the top of his head, but left curling on the sides. He has a mustache. Dowe wears a dark colored jacket and vest, a white shirt, and a light colored bowtie. The edges of the image are purposefully faded in the popular style of the time.
Handwritten in graphite on the bottom of the print is the text "Eugene Dowe". Printed on the back of the photograph is the text "L. Thompson / 12 Shetucket St., Norwich, Conn."
The photograph is housed in the album 2017.30. The album page has a triple-lined, gold border framing the print.
