OLDER GENTLEMAN WITH LONG WHITE BEARD IN PAWTUCKET, RHODE ISLAND

by bmarshphd

RI BEARD_0004The Salisbury studio in Pawtucket, Rhode Island produced this cabinet card portrait of an elderly man with a long white beard. His beard is very impressive but one wonders how he ate without wearing his food. To view other interesting beards click on the category "Beards (Only The Best)". The photographer was Arnold F. Salisbury. His name can be found in many Pawtucket city directories of the 1880's. At one time his studio was located at 65 Mill Street. He is considered by "Classy Arts" photo history site as one of America's most productive photographers during the Carte De  Visite era (he  is among over 200 photographers so designated). Salisbury's obituary appears in the Bulletin of Photography (1918). In the brief article it is mentioned that Salisbury was a civil war veteran. Further research revealed that he was a private in the 1st Regiment Rhode Island Infantry (company E) for three months in 1861. He later served as a second sergeant in the 9th Regiment Rhode Island Infantry (Company A) and as a first lieutenant in the 12th Regiment Rhode Island Infantry (Company H).
