This cabinet card features a well dressed and good looking man photographed in New York City, by the Reichmann & Co. studio. A quick comb would improve this gentleman’s hair immensely; and the photographer must not have noticed or cared about hair styling. The man is identified on the reverse of the card as J. E. Risly and the inscription discloses that the photograph was taken in 1888. J. E. Risly is listed in the New York City Directory (1912) as living at 14 EAst 28th Street.
