This cabinet card portrait features the portrait of a well dressed older man wearing a well groomed long beard. The reverse of the photograph identifies the gentleman as being Dr. Baker. The photograph was taken at the studio of Taylor & Martin.  An ad for Taylor  & Martin was found in a Chicago Business Directory (1887). The ad included the information that the studio was formerly called Gentile & Company before Taylor and Martin assumed ownership. To view more photographs by this pair, click on the category "Photographer: Taylor & Martin".

"MISS CONSTERNATION" IN BURLINGTON, IOWA

by bmarshphd
LUPTON
This cabinet card portrait captures a curly haired young woman posing for her portrait at the Lupton studio in Burlington, Iowa. Note the woman's lace collar. One wonders about the meaning of her clasped hands. Is she deep in prayer? Is she overwhelmed by worry. The photographer of this image is Oscal L. Lupton who was born in 1849 in Indiana. He appears in the 1880 US census and is listed as working as a photographer in Greenville, Illinois and living with his wife Nellie. The 1900 US census finds Mr Lupton living in Burlington with his wife and three sons.

MOUTHLESS MAN IN ITHACA, NEW YORK

by bmarshphd
The Cabinet Card Gallery has discovered another mouthless man. This gentleman posed for his portrait at the McGillivray studio in Ithaca, New York. The studio was located at 28 & 30 East State Street. Those that know Ithaca winters can imagine this gentleman trudging through mounds of snow in frigid temperature with a frozen beard and mustache. To view other interesting beards an mustaches, click on the category "Beards (Only the Best)". Research found some information about the photographer of this image. Ellsworth McGillivray was born in Caroline, NY in 1862. He attended the Ithaca school system and after he left school he became a painter. In 1881 he began his career as a photographer. He worked for photographer George Stanley for two years and then was employed by E. D. Evans for six years. He then worked in Cortland, NY for one year before returning to Ithaca in 1890 and buying the Forest City Art Gallery. McGillivray was married to Jessie L Shaw of Albion, NY.
