INTELLECTUAL MAN POSES FOR HIS PORTRAIT IN PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA

This cabinet card features a well dressed man posing for his portrait at the studio of Phillip E. Chillman in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This gentleman looks like an intellectual. Perhaps its his wire rim glasses and well trimmed beard that contributes to his appearance of  intellectual prowess. However, I think his expressive eyes are what makes him appear so  bright. His eyes can best be described as analytical. This guy is taking it all in, and processing it.
