DISTINGUISHED LOOKING GENTLEMAN IN HELENA, MONTANA

montana

Lowry’s Art Place was the location that the distinguished looking man in this cabinet card portrait had this picture taken. The gentleman pictured is well dressed and well groomed. Though he was likely a resident of a western town, he appears to have made his living with his brain rather than his brawn. Perhaps he is a lawyer or a physician. The photographer of this image is H. J. Lowry, who according to the advertising on the reverse of this cabinet card, had studios in both Bozeman and Helena, Montana. Howard J Lowry is listed in the Helena Business Directories of 1889 through at least 1892 as a “portrait artist” (photographer) and as a teacher of drawing and painting at Helena Business College.
