This cabinet card features a well dressed gentleman with neatly combed hair and a wiry gray beard. The photographer of the image is W. R. Call and his studio was located in Manchester, New Hampshire.  Whiting Rexford Call (1839- ?) finished public school and became in succession, a school teacher, grocery clerk, and photographer. He opened his photography studio  in 1867 and it was still operating forty years later. The 1882 Manchester Directory listed the studio’s address as 895 Elm Street.
