This terrific Cabinet card is a photograph of a priest taken by the Chauncey Moore Studio of Springfield, Massachusetts. The reverse of the card is stamped indicating that duplicates could be obtained from the Society of St. Vincent De Paul. Cabinet card photographs of clergy are not uncommon although this is a nice close-up. Note the fine detail of his clothing. At one time, Moore partnered in a Springfield studio with his brother Hiram C. Moore. To view Hiram Moore’s work, click on the category “Photographer: Moore (Hiram).
